In his Prix Goncourt-nominated novel, Alain Mabanckou [CONGO/ USA] tells the story of the adventures of the Congolese orphan Petit Piment (Little Pepper), who flees from a Catholic children’s home at the beginning of the socialist revolution, keeps himself afloat with little thefts as part of a gang of street children in Pointe-Noire, and finally finds refuge with a brothel owner and her ten daughters. There, however, new trials await him ... »One of the strongest voices in contemporary French literature.« [SZ]
