[Large print] The Blight is a tragicomic African mystery about a disorientated man's quest to regain his soul, literally.

Ansong wishes to die so he can regain his soul; Larepoh desires new breasts so she can ‘live’; Valentin needs to steal so he can become honest; Doc’s yearning is to cheat so she can taste love; and, Sgt.
