    1. Ferdinand Oyono's "The Old Man and the Medal", first published as "Le Vieux Nègre et La Médaille" in 1956, is one of the best of the African novels dealing with the clash of cultures during the era of European colonial rule in Africa. The protagonist is Meka, a village elder, who has always been a good colonial subject. When he is summoned to receive a medal at a ceremonial presentation, his ideas begin to change. Meka, his wife, and other villagers are well-drawn characters. The English trans [...]


    2. حتى لا تضيع الذاكرة ,روايةٌ بارعة و بالغة الذكاء عن العلاقة ما بين المستعمَر و المستعمِر وهمُ الأخوّة و صدمة الحقيقة ثمّ عودةُ الذاكرة ثمّ تقويض القناعات للانقلاب على الواقع ثمّ الاستكانة يا للرسالة الموجّهة بمكرٍ لا يخفىمن أفريقيا حيث ماتت الكثير من البشاعة في أرضِ النس [...]


    3. At times brilliant but sometimes meandering and a little too absurdistic to my taste. Not to forget the authors obsession with buttocks.


    4. I read this book many years ago but its message is still very relevant today. I don't think you need to be an African to identify with it but it does help.This book talks about the idealism behind recognition which is often misconstrued. Meka had hoped that the medal would mean more and perhaps change his life, but he discovers that it is just that, a medal. Not only the colonial masters did this. In my country even today the same thing happens. You work all your life in service to your country [...]


    5. A good, quick read that will illuminate bits of Cameroon's traditions and colonial history if you haven't read much out from here. No doubt this book was timely and hard-hitting in it's daybut, as literature goes, it's a bit heavy handed for my taste with caricatures instead of characters.




    6. This was set in my book group as a complement to Things Fall Apart and it performs this task well. This novel is originally written in French and is largely (but not entirely) humorous and satirical. It looks at existence under colonialism rather than its advent and it is for this reason that it doesn't need to ease you into the native African perspective: it is readily apparent how ludicrous, cruel and immoral colonialism is.The book is a similar length to TFA but it feels much shorter. It work [...]



    7. Happy literature from top to bottom. It wasn't a very easy read but the author has a way with words, which I guess he should!
