This dark and suspenseful novel tells the story of a fictitious West African country caught in the grip of civil war. The dispassionate and deadpan narrator, Asante Kroma, is a former head of Secret Services and finds himself living with the corpse of the dictator, a man who once ruled his nation with an iron fist. Through a series of flashbacks and letters penned by the dictator, N’Zo Nikiema, readers discover the role of the French shadow leader, Pierre Castaneda, whose ongoing ambition to exploit the natural resources of the country knows no limits. As these powerful men use others as pawns in a violent real-life chess match, it is the murder of six-year-old Kaveena and her mother’s quest for vengeance that brings about a surprise reckoning.

Lorsque le colonel Asante Kroma, chef de la police, entre dans une maison solitaire, il fait une découverte stupéfiante : devant lui vient de mourir le président N'Zo Nikiema, chef dÉtat en fuite. En prévision de sa chute, il avait fait construire un bunker sous l’atelier d’une jeune artiste-peintre, Mumbi Awele, qu’il rencontrait en secret. Était-elle sa maîtresse ? Une prostituée ? Leur liaison s’était bâtie autour d’un meurtre, celui de Kaveena, fillette de six ans. L’enfant de Mumbi. Le colonel décide de vivre quelques jours dans ce lieu étouffant. Peu à peu se dévoile à lui l’incroyable vérité sur le meurtre de Kaveena. Mais surtout sur les relations troubles entre Nikiema et le véritable homme fort du pays, le Français Pierre Castaneda. Porté par les tremblements de voix d’un narrateur d’autant plus émouvant qu’il ne sait guère où il va, Kaveena explore les grands maux dont souffre l’Afrique, livrée aux appétits insensés de politiciens violents, locaux et étrangers. Une Afrique représentée ici par le personnage de Mumbi, femme indomptable, contrainte d’offrir son corps tout en conservant une mystérieuse dignité.

"[W]hat is true of Rwanda is true in each of us; we all share in Africa." —L'Harmattan "[This novel] comes closer than have many political scientists or historians to trying to understand why this small country... sank in such appalling violence." —Radio France International In April of 1994, nearly a million Rwandans were killed in what would prove to be one of the swiftest, most terrifying killing sprees of the 20th century. In Murambi, The Book of Bones, Boubacar Boris Diop comes face to face with the chilling horror and overwhelming sadness of the tragedy. Now, the power of Diop's acclaimed novel is available to English-speaking readers through Fiona Mc Laughlin's crisp translation. The novel recounts the story of a Rwandan history teacher, Cornelius Uvimana, who was living and working in Djibouti at the time of the massacre. He returns to Rwanda to try to comprehend the death of his family and to write a play about the events that took place there. As the novel unfolds, Cornelius begins to understand that it is only our humanity that will save us, and that as a writer, he must bear witness to the atrocities of the genocide. From the novel: "If only by the way people are walking, you can see that tension is mounting by the minute. I can feel it almost physically. Everyone is running or at least hurrying about. I meet more and more passersby who seem to be walking around in circles. There seems to be another light in their eyes. I think of the fathers who have to face the anguished eyes of their children and who can't tell them anything. For them, the country has become an immense trap in the space of just a few hours. Death is on the prowl. They can't even dream of defending themselves. Everything has been meticulously prepared for a long time: the administration, the army, and the [militia] are going to combine forces to kill, if possible, every last one of them."

The media tends to portray Africa in a manner that grossly distorts reality. The picture they paint is intended to make people of African descent feel ashamed of their past and their identity. This is unacceptable and must change. It is therefore a moral imperative for all those who can make themselves heard, to speak out. These texts reflect the point of view of an African intellectual who has selected them for this volume because they were all born out of the desire to tell the truth as it is.

By looking at engagée literature from the recent past, when the francophone African writer was implicitly seen as imparted with a mission, to the present, when such authors usually aspire to be acknowledged primarily for their work as writers, Contemporary Francophone African Writers and the Burden of Commitment addresses the currrent processes of canonization in contemporary francophone African literature. Odile Cazenave and Patricia Célérier argue that aesthetic as well as political issues are now at the forefront of debates about the African literary canon, as writers and critics increasingly acknowledge the ideology of form. Working across genres but focusing on the novel, the authors take up the question of renewed forms of commitment in this literature. Their selected writers range from Mongo Beti, Ousmane Sembène, and Aminata Sow Fall to Boubacar Boris Diop, Véronique Tadjo, Alain Mabanckou, and Léonora Miano, among others.
