Reading your way through the World Cup

The United States takes the field tonight at 5:30pm for its first World Cup 2014 game vs. Ghana. It you are interested in reading your way through the world cup Danny Scott of The Scottish Book Trust has put together an impressive list of titles.


Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi, Penguin

Ghana Must Go was the much anticipated debut novel of part Ghanaian, part Nigerian Taiye Selasi. Selasi rose to fame when she coined the term 'Afropolitan' to describe a new class of educated, ambitious Africans and sons and daughters of the African diaspora. In Selasi's beautifully written debut, three such Afropolitans must journey to the land of their parents when their estranged father dies suddenly of a heart attack.
