Through the lens of the automobile, Lindsey B. Green-Simms considers the pleasures, dangers, and limits of global modernity in West Africa. With readings of famous plays, novels, and films and recent popular videos, she reveals how automobility in the region is an everyday practice, an ethos, a fantasy of autonomy, and an affective activity intimately tied to modern social life.
