Product Details


“A tour de force — original, irreverent, brutal, funny, poetic — in which history and myth are brilliantly evoked.” —The Independent (London)“This is one of the funniest, most powerful, most intense novels to appear in French for a decade.” —Le Nouvel Observateur (Paris)“Shocking and deeply moving. . . . . An African Lord of the Flies.” —The Guardian (London)“Witty and wholly authentic. . . . Spellbinding. . . . Kourouma has been likened to Voltaire. . . Gabriel García Márquez also comes to mind, likewise John Updike’s sparkling ventriloquism.” —The Spectator (London)
