goncourt: les polonais choisisent

At times it is a bit confusing to me: all these literary prizes, continental, global, national, regional. Longlists. Shortlists.

Well, now some information on Alain Mabanckou who wrote about younger years in Congo/Brazzaville in his book Petit Piment. Polish people have decided to honour him, in the race till the final say of the Prix Goncourt.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
