Mabanckou’s wacky, vibrant Black Moses….

Mabanckou’s wacky, vibrant Black Moses….

 

 

The reviews and praise keeps coming

 

“One of the most compelling books you’ll read in any language this year.” —Rolling Stone

 

“[Black Moses] rings with a beautiful poetry”—Wall Street Journal

 

“Vivid and funny”—New York Magazine

 

“Moses comes of age quickly in this offbeat bildungsroman…”—Chicago Tribune

 

“One of O’s Top 20 books to read this summer.”—O (The Oprah Magazine)

 

“This mythic, beguiling novel is a journey to discover what is hard-wired in us and what we make up about ourselves.”—Publishers Weekly STARRED Review

 

“[R]ibald, acerbic, and poignant… This tightly contained, densely packed story issues a challenge that never loses its urgency: how does a person cling to a sense of autonomy when it’s under siege by so many powerful forces?”—Kirkus STARRED review  

 

“Funny and sharply satiric… over several books… Mabanckou has created a vibrant world in which Pointe-Noir has taken on the stature of an African Yoknapatawpha county.”—Booklist
