Praise

“Max Lobe writes about danger and uncertainty with unwavering compassion and hope. A Long Way from Doula—a coming-of-age road trip bursting with love and humor—traces the delicate bonds between parent and child, childhood and adulthood, life and death.” —Catherine Lacey, author of Pew

“Redolent with the sights, sounds, and smells of modern Cameroon, this is in fact a classic road trip, a Homeric quest in which our two young heroes may not discover what they were seeking but learn a great deal about themselves, each other, and the state of Africa. A jostling, poignant tale, it left me hungry for more.” —Michela Wrong, author Borderlines and It’s Our Turn to Eat
 
“[Max Lobe’s] eye is as compassionate as his characterizations are rich. I only wish this novel had been twice the length. You are in for a treat.” —Patrick Gale, author of Take Nothing With You
