Summary "Près du port d'Accra, au Ghana, dans une immense décharge de produits électroniques, Isaac et Moïse initient Jacob à la " fouille ". Un reporter franco-suisse, Thomas, tente de pénétrer ce périmètre interdit pour photographier ces enfants plongés dans la noirceur de l'obsolescence industrielle. Un premier roman captivant qui interroge, avec grâce et un humour impitoyable, les zones troubles du regard occidental."-- Second paragraph of the synopsis on the cover.
