José Eduardo Agualusa is the author of Market of the Damned and Rainy Season.
'One of the most powerful and most beautiful arguments against a stereotyped vision of Africa. Agualusa rediscovers the brutal and fascinating world of mulatto Africa, a world riddled with love and hate that jumps social barriers; with political riots that mobilize whites as well as blacks; and with intrigues that unfold in cosmopolitan settings. In short, a Creole nation that has needed more than a century to rebuild the beauty and the magnetism of this stolen memory' - El Pais
