Faceless is set in modern day Accra Ghana and it aims to enlighten its readers on the phenomenon of a street child. They are denied basic rights, they are exploited physically, mentally and sexually. Many end up becoming hardened criminals like Poison or petty ones like Fofo and Ordaley. Worse still, some have irreversible experiences like death as in the cases of Baby.

The society also becomes a victim of the phenomenon as young talents are wasted, criminalized and made torturers of innocents – as it happens in the case of Fofo trying to rob Kabria. Some of the parents and guardians of these children are left to be plagued by their guilt.

 

The novel opens our eyes to some of the courses of streetism among young ones. One of which are; parental irresponsibility – a prime example is Maa Tsuru. She can be said to be the architects of her children misfortunes. Other causes are poverty, faulty beliefs, ignorance, absentee fathers and irresponsibility.

The lawyer who defends Bigger at his trial, Max is a member of the Labor Defenders, a legal organization affiliated with the Communist Party. While it would seem natural for Max himself to be a communist, his party affiliation is never made explicitly clear in the novel. Max is certainly sympathetic to the communist cause, but, unlike Jan, never identifies himself as a member of the Party. Of all the white characters in the novel, Max is able to see and understand Bigger most clearly. He speaks to Bigger as a human being, rather than simply as a black man or a murderer, which gives Bigger the chance to tell his own story for the first time in his life. Max’s recognition of Bigger’s humanity allows Bigger to understand for the first time that a sympathetic relationship between a white man and a black man is possible. Still, Max is unable to avoid viewing Bigger as a symbol of racial oppression one of millions of black men just like him and therefore is never able to understand him fully.

Alani is Yaremi’s son who lived in the city. He hardly came to the village having taken to city life. In other words Uncle Deyo, a friend of Yaremi’s husband comes and shows Alani the farmlands of his father which has been left untended since his death. According to uncle Deyo, ‘It is the duty of the son to look after his father’s property. When fire burns, it succeeds itself with wood ash. Despite all this Alani is not moved. The next day, he approaches his mother, Yaremi and explains to her that he cannot stay in the village to tend any farm. He has a booming carpentry business in the city which he wants to face squarely in a bid to marry ‘a pretty city girl’ who is now heavy with pregnancy and to also take his mother to his home in the city in the end. After this explanation, Alani leaves two loaves of bread, a tin of corned beef and a large size custard for his mother and departs. Yaremi bursts into tears.
