 GraceLand by Chris Abani
However, Elvis Presley’s GraceLand after which the novel is named, is both in name and context, a contradiction-in-terms to the slum of Maroko.
Like Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities, GraceLand is the story of a young lad caught between the two contrasting cities, struggling to survive and make good, but running up against the decay, misery, urban blight and moral turpitude of a nation trapped in its own contradictions.
But all-in-all, GraceLand is also a painful book of total recall that unmasks the foibles of the society, presenting for all to see, its dark secrets and all that is bad and wrong, from homosexuality to depravity, incest, greed, and the unbridled power of those in government.

A landmark recording, Graceland won a bundle of awards and helped launch a substantial Western presence for South African groups like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Malathini and the Mahotella Queens.
With Graceland, Paul Simon hit on the idea of combining his always perceptive songwriting with the little-heard mbaqanga music of South Africa, creating a fascinating hybrid that re-enchanted his old audience and earned him a new one.
It is true that the South African angle (including its controversial aspect during the apartheid days) was a powerful marketing tool and that the catchy music succeeded in presenting listeners with that magical combination: something they'd never heard before that nevertheless sounded familiar.
