A Gecko's Farewell is a novel about three Africans from different parts of the continent who meet in the spirit (online) and plan to found a School of Stories.

Etiaba, a village schoolteacher, loses his job and moves to the capital city and its world of prayer contractors and hope merchants. Mzilikazi's is the story of the homeless spectre, the boy soldier, the fugitive, the exile - a black South African dislocated under the Apartheid regime. Nadia is a radical student of photography at the American University in Cairo. She becomes a photojournalist and takes the picture of an Islamist terrorist, an act that endangers her.

These three characters eventually escape from Africa, but Africa is in a sense inescapable.
