A young man from a small village in Cameroon takes America by storm. Winston Churchill Mbongo has spent years dreaming of playing basketball for Coach Tex Brawner and the Hickston College Vultures. When the opportunity finally arrives, he doesn’t disappoint. A player who stands 7’8″ and handles the ball like a point guard is, of course, a phenomenon of the first order. In addition to examining Mbongo’s talents and character in fine detail, the story uncovers a web of deceit, greed, and lust on the Hickston campus. This hilariously funny and good-natured novel is ultimately a tribute to the healing power of goodness.
