    2. The King of Kahel is my book from Guinea for the Read The World challenge It is the first book printed by Crossing, s own publishing imprint specialising in translated literature They say Crossing uses customer feedback and other data from sites to identify exceptional works that deserve a wider, global audience So this book was presumably picked up because it was a big hit in French.It s rather unusual among all the post colonial literature I ve read for the Read The World challenge, because th [...]

    3. I received Le Mot Juste A Dictionary of Classical and Foreign Words and Phrasesfor my tenth birthday, and though I am unable to locate it in the stacks at the moment, though I suspect that it is somewhere in the second or third row of books on the shelf in the foyer i distinctly remember an entry for a word in Javanese or Zulu that translates roughly into English as the act of stealing everything a man owns by borrowing each of his possessions one by one and not returning them This word, if I we [...]

    4. I m always on the lookout for new fiction from Africa, so when I saw this translation of a Guinean book was available I snapped it up Aside from my interest in world literature, my grandparents lived in Conakry from 1960 62, so the country holds a particular interest for me The novel as a form does not have a long history in Africa, and as a result, much of the African fiction available in the West focuses on the struggle for independence and the legacy of colonialism This book goes further back [...]

    7. Fearless Frenchman Founds Forest FiefWe have a number of colonial tales of white men who strove to carve out kingdoms among peoples in odd corners of the world that had not yet been much influenced by the West Kipling s The Man Who Would Be King does come to mind, but impressive is the true story of the white rajahs of Sarawak, a British family dynasty that ruled a large patch on Borneo s north coast for over a century When these tales are told, it is always from the European point of view The [...]

    9. Sweeping story about the life of a Frenchman whose dream from childhood was to become the king of Fouta Djallon He develops a great affinity for Africa while never shedding the imperialist culture he comes from Vivid depiction of the intersection of cultures leading to war The narrative style is original and entertaining.

    10. A fictionalised account of the real life Oliver de Sanderval s brief soujourn as king of his own African kingdom The story is an interesting one, but the style constantly gets in the way of its telling I found it overblown and over written, the humour laboured, the jokes telegraphed and there are exclamation marks than a teenage girl s diary A good story badly told.

    16. Very tongue in cheek view of franco colonialsim The perspective is unique in that our hero, is well, not really a hero, but kind of a self centered, colonialist with visions of grandeur.
