Graceland (Chris Abani)

Nigeria / 2004

Graceland is the intricate tale of an Elvis-impersonating Nigerian boy who's obsessed with American culture. In his costume, he begs and gains money for his impoverished family. However, when times get tough, he's forced to abandon his innocent dream and undertake something much more sinister. I absolutely love this cover.
