Description (in English): 

This book is a collection of misattributed quotes created in a collaborative writing project by a group of Ghanian writers on Facebook. Initially the project used the hashtag #GHquotes but it was changed to #GHcoats as a play on both the common Ghanian pronunciation of quotes as coats and the Ghanian sartorial fascination with ornate and often climate-inappropriate clothing. Many of the quotes play upon Ghanian themes, but are attributed to famous people, such as Albert Einstein, Chairman Mao or Mohammed Ali. (Source:
