Format: Paperback
The main protagonist, a member of the nouvelle bourgeoisie who lives up to the values of the former French colonists, marries his third wife - but in the wedding night he loses his virility. Whatever he tries to regain it - he is not successful until he returns to his own roots which are the roots of his people. A remarkable novel which shows a completely different world.

I had to purchase this book for a class, but I was surprised to discover how much I enjoyed reading it. It's a fairly short book, and a quick read, but it's also an enjoyable tale. I will admit that it has some very post-colonial ideals embedded in the narrative about economic freedom, but that isn't so overwhelming as to turn the story into a parable.

Sembene writes a compelling story about the problems of double patriarchy and blending the new and old. A short read, but an amazing one. Every part has a purpose and all the characters have depth and purpose in the story. Much better than the film representation and overall fantastic.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book could've been better. I did not like how it ended and the characters seem weak and un believable.
