Editorial Reviews


Praise for The Poor Christ of Bomba:
In spite of the serious depth of the novel—its exploration of themes of racial and ethical incompatibility—comedy is always present in even the most dramatic scenes.

(Times Literary Supplement)

Praise for The Poor Christ of Bomba:
The book is extremely funny, with several scenes of ludicrous slapstick.

(West Africa)

Praise for King Lazarus:
Both the author and his African characters are good at making fun of themselves, deflating pomposity, loquacious oratory, and concern for prestige.

(Books Abroad)

Praise for Perpetua and the Habit of Unhappiness:
The poetic quality of the language cannot be denied... [and] reaffirms the author's literary stature.

(Books Abroad)
