About the book
On a drowsy, warm Sunday afternoon, four men play a game of dominos underneath a tamarind tree. The apparent calm that envelopes them gives the impression that this is about nothing more than a domino game. However, on this Sunday, their game will evolve into a fight of life or death. The men bring not only their tiles, but also their problems to the domino table: at the end of the day we know their what they think about one another, about each other’s wives, politics and the world. Double Play was translated in several languages. A film adaptation was released in May 2017. The movie was produced by Lisa Cortés and Gregory Elias and directed by Ernest Dickerson (Do The Right Thing; The Wire).
