Véronique Tadjo on questions of identity and a father's funeral

By Imogen Lamb

Véronique Tadjo's latest novel, Loin de mon père, tells the story of a young woman of mixed race who returns to Côte d'Ivoire to organise her father's funeral. The country has changed, family secrets are revealed and traditions and family obligations have to be respected. Tadjo talks about her book and her own experience being "not even a complete African", as she was once described.
