    Book Description:

    "Patrice Nganang’s dazzling novel [stands] in a league of its own, so different from the great majority of novels by African writers in the past fifty or sixty years." —Charles R. Larson, Counterpunch

    "Cameroonian writer Nganang delivers a modern epic, tinged with liberal doses of magical realism, of life in his country’s colonial era . . . An elegantly drawn and engaging world of a sort unknown to most readers—but one they’ll be glad to have visited." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
