Does Snow Turn A Person White Inside by Max Lobe BLOG TOUR @maxlobe3 @hoperoadpublish #Win #Competition @RandomTTours #Giveaway


The narrator, Mwana, is a young man from Bantuland, living in Geneva. 
A graduate from a Swiss university, we first encounter Mwana waiting for a bus in the hills of Lugano gazing at a poster calling for "black sheep" to be sent home. 
Mwana's efforts to find work are fruitless until he lands an internship in an NGO campaigning against racial discrimination. 
The team is busy organising a demonstration against the black sheep poster. 
Mwana has one foot in each culture. 
He sees Swiss society through African eyes, with all its contradictions: its moderation, stunning landscapes and its eccentricities, but also its intolerance and inflexibility. 
He also casts a critical eye on his native Africa, the weight of its traditions and beliefs. 
Is belonging nowhere the price Mwana has to pay for these insights? 

Sad and playful Does Snow Turn a Person White Inside? is a moving reflection on the immigrant.
