Translated from French by Gerald Moore

The hilarious rise and rise of the ultimate African military dictator, a brilliant, ferocious burlesque of contemporary power politics as seen from within by a major African writer. From Congo-Brazzaville.

"Lopes' book is satirical, bawdy, savage, and filled with love and hope."
