Product Description


"A thoroughly odd and original book." -- Trish Crapo "Women's Review of Books" (05/22/2006)

"A thoroughly odd and original book."-- Trish Crapo, "Women''s Review of Books"

"Sad ironies illuminate this deftly mapped journey to the postcolonial heart of darkness. . . . With prose both dark and rollicking, Constant chronicles colonialism''s terrible absurdities and reverberating effects on both Africans and Europeans."--"Publishers Weekly"

"French novelist Constant, a Prix Goncourt winner, presents a whip-smart postcolonial satire. . . . Constant''s mordantly funny novel is at once a brilliantly imagined and rambunctious inquiry into environmental havoc, our close ties to our primate cousins, adulterated religion, the mystique of whiteness, and the persistence of racism, and a piquant tale of survival and longing."--"Booklist"--Donna Seaman"Booklist" (02/01/2006)

"This straightforward yet surreal work is beautifully written. Almost every paragraph contains an original and elaborate word construction that never rings false. Wing, who has translated two previous novels by Constant, deserves recognition for her work."--"Library Journal"--Rebecca Stuhr"Library Journal" (03/15/2006)

"A thoroughly odd and original book."--Trish Crapo, "Women''s Review of Books"--Trish Crapo"Women's Review of Books" (05/22/2006)
