Our Musseque

Author: José Luandino Vieira

Language: English

Summary: The shanty towns in Luanda, the capital of Angola, in the 1940s and 1950s, come are vividly depicted in this idiosyncratic novel published more than 40 years after the author wrote it, in prison. Prostitutes, shopkeepers, children and drunks jostle and collide, giving conflicting accounts of their experiences as the civil war approaches, a conflict that will change their lives for good. Funny, shocking and moving, it makes you nostalgic for a place you have never been. Source: The Guardian
