Birahima knows a lot about tribal wars. In the first of the two novels he travels through warring Liberia and Sierra Leone to find his aunt, and is hired by various warlords. His road companion, Yacouba, is a wheeler-dealer and a witch doctor. He is back on the road again, fleeing pro-government militias who are killing members of the northern Malinke tribe. Birahima tells his story in a unique mixture of erudite French, Malinke slang and local proverbs with definitions for all of them in parentheses. The colour and structure are resolutely African. Portraits of demented warlords and warladies mingle with Birahima's unusual view of the world, to leave readers on occasions laughing out loud.
