    1. Having just returned from a west African country where young people can’t find work, this was of great interest. Commendations to Phoneme Media for publishing the first novel translated into English from Lingala. Their newsletter cites a discussion between the author and Ngugi wa Thiong’o at a Los Angeles Public Library event, which may be available online. The author had to attend virtually because his visa request was denied. The style is simple, but it conveys convincingly how a feckless [...]


    2. This is the (DR) Congolese book about the trials of a young man trying to meet the expectations of his family, girlfriends (plural) and friends. Not to be confused with various other books of the same title which seem to fit into two categories: DIY books; "romances" with pictures of topless men on the cover. Search for this book online at your peril.A brief and vibrant picture of life in Kinshasa significant for being the first translated into English from Lingala and one of very few from the D [...]



    3. This little book tells the story of Ebamba, a man from the capital city of Kinshasa who wants to marry Eyenga. The road to wedlock is fraught with peril, however, beginning with the wrangling that must be done by the couple’s families to establish the bride price. The negotiations aren’t helped by the relentless rain, which causes roofs to leak and sewers to overflow. Making things even worse, Ebamba’s landlady hears of his engagement and threatens to evict him, since unbeknownst to him, s [...]



    4. I'm happy to have been able to read this first work of fiction translated into English from Lingala, which paints a vibrant (though predictably deeply troubling) picture of life in contemporary Kinshasa. I hope that other African authors will be inspired to publish in their continent's indigenous languages. I have no doubt that the book is much richer in Lingala, and I am so glad that for the sections that are a bit poetic/lyrical, the Lingala appears along with the translations of each line; th [...]


    5. A charming short novel that started out interestingly: negotiations over a dowry between families before the marriage of two betrothed. I think if it had continued in this vein I woulda liked it a little more, but the book devolved about halfway through and became a book about a love triangle, complete with inebriated deceitful acts, giving in to lust, regret, discovery, suicide. Good but coulda been better.
