The Radiance of the King
Sep 27, 2017
Clever, puzzling, often troubling satire of colonial literature. Most people who have read Conrad will get it; I feel really bad for the reviewers on goodreads who say that this is the first African novel they've read (try Things Fall Apart first please). This book plays rough with European stereotypes of Africa, so if before reading it you check out the assertions that it was not written by Camara, you're going to feel queasy for much of the second half especially.
