From Water to Wine explores how Angola has changed since the end of its civil war in 2002. Its focus is on the middle class— defined as those with a house, a car, and an education—and their consumption, aspirations, and hopes for their families. It takes as its starting point “what is working in Angola?” rather than “what is going wrong?” and makes a deliberate, political choice to give attention to beauty and happiness in everyday life in a country that has had an unusually troubled history. Each chapter focuses on one of the five senses, with the introduction and conclusion provoking reflection on proprioception (or kinesthesia) and curiosity. Various media are employed—poetry, recipes, photos, comics, and other textual experiments—to engage readers and their senses. Written for a broad audience, this text is an excellent addition to the study of Africa, the lusophone world, international development, sensory ethnography, and ethnographic writing.
