Lynn Nottage’s beautiful, endlessly echoing portrait of a murder and its afterlife.

Ben Brantley, New York Times

What deals will we make to get what we most desire? Meet Mlima, last of the “big-tusker” elephants in Kenya, trapped by the underground international ivory market. As he follows a trail of greed and desire as old as trade itself, Mlima takes us on a journey through memory and fear, history and tradition, want and need, and the complicated deals we make with ourselves and each other to get what we most desire.
