'Burning with magic and loss, exile and return, beauty and heartache, Taduno's Song is a colossal epic, disguised as a small novel' MARLON JAMES, Booker Prize-winning author of A Brief History Of Seven KillingsThe day a stained brown envelope arrives from Taduno's homeland, he knows that the time has come to return from exile. Arriving full of hope, the musician discovers that his community no longer recognises him and no one recalls his voice.

His girlfriend Lela has disappeared, taken away by government agents.

He wanders through his house in search of clues but any trace of his old life has been erased.

As he realises that all there is left of the house and of himself is an empty shell, Taduno finds a new purpose: to unravel the mystery of his lost life and to find his lost love.

Through this search, he comes to face a difficult decision: to sing for love or to sing for his people. Taduno's Song is a moving tale of sacrifice, love and courage.
