The story of Mikkel, the Sami man who travels to The Central African Republic is one I completely made up. Nonetheless, I use this character to touch on some issues. For example, the destruction of the rain forest through logging. I also touched upon aid; how some of it is wasted and misguided. The novel has several aspects to it-contemporary issues.
The novel also brings out the connection made by my main character, Mikkel, between his Sami people and that of some African countries and peoples. For example, he draws comparison between the Sami and the Masi people.
And of course, I also add some funny bits.As with my last novel, I also deal with existential issues…….
