‘IT was a sim­ple in­vi­ta­tion [in Ac­cra, Ghana]. Voices from the tiny night­mar­ket stalls — barely shel­ter, in­vis­i­ble in the rain-pounded, black­ened street — called out I stum­bled past a row of shut­tered stores hug­ging the gut­ter’s edge . . . in the glow of a kerosene lamp, a woman cloaked in a dark sweater beck­oned to me from un­der the canopy of a shop. ‘‘Sis­ter, you are no more at Eng­land. Come out of the rain!’’ ’
