Review:

"The novel is rich with humorous and ironic insight about both Africans and Europeans in Africa. The ignorance and hypocrisy of many of the French colonialists is trenchantly critiqued by Oyono. The book is both tender and sharp toward the African communities it portrays." --Thomas Lynn, Penn State Berks

"Ferdinand Oyono is a brilliant and engaging author who, in this novel, successfully addresses the hypocrisy of colonialism with subtle seriousness and satire. Though fairly short, the novel analyzes a wide range of historical and social issues." --Philip Effiong, Michigan State University
