A powerful and affecting novel of Africa’s child-soldiers, by French Africa’s pre-eminent novelist. Birahima is ten years old. He lives in the Ivory Coast. He is a soldier. In Ahmadou Kourouma’s extraordinary novel, Birahima tells his story. At the age of ten his mother dies and Birahima leaves his native village, accompanied by the sorcerer/crook Yacouba, to search for his aunt Mahan. Crossing the border into Liberia, they are seized by a rebel force and press-ganged into military service. Birahima is given a Kalashnikov, minimal rations of food, a small supply of dope and a tiny wage. Fighting in a totally chaotic civil war, and alongside many other boys, some no older than himself, Birahima sees death, torture, amputation and madness, but somehow manages to retain his own sanity. Ahmadou Kourouma’s masterpiece is powerful, terrible and frequently bitterly funny. From the Hardcover edition.

Ahmadou Kourouma was born in the Ivory Coast in 1927. Hailed as one of the leading African writers in French, he died in 2003.
