This powerful first novel chronicles the lives of two families: the first, poor, working-class and ill-educated, is compared to a young politically aware college student and her journalist fiance. The middle-class pair--idealistic and increasingly active in opposing the repressive post-colonial regime under which they all live--become victims of the same brutal violence delivered to the poor and powerless of their country. A stunning narrative of post-colonial Africa.
