"The first writer of genius to come out of Africa" - B.B.C.
"An account of Camara Laye's boyhood experiences in an African tribe. It is remarkableeven a little astonishing -for its inside presentation of customs and formalities by a participant sensitive enough to feel and re-create their total impact. The African Child is memorable for the affection, honesty and intimacy that touch an African people into living warmth." The Times
"Camara Laye's story is important for those who would understand a continent in turmoil. It is written in an austere, dignified prose charged with sincerity.' The Listener
"A beautiful book... James Kirkup's translation could hardly be bettered. Camara Laye is an artist and has written a book which is a work of art." Times Literary Supplement
