Amiable with Big Teeth by , Book Summary:

A monumental literary event: the newly discovered final novel by seminal Harlem Renaissance writer Claude McKay, a rich and multilayered portrayal of life in 1930s Harlem and a historical protest for black freedom The unexpected discovery in 2009 of a completed manuscript of Claude McKay’s final novel was celebrated as one of the most significant literary events in recent years. Building on the already extraordinary legacy of McKay’s life and work, this colorful, dramatic novel centers on the efforts by Harlem intelligentsia to organize support for the liberation of fascist-controlled Ethiopia, a crucial but largely forgotten event in American history. At once a penetrating satire of political machinations in Depression-era Harlem and a far-reaching story of global intrigue and romance, Amiable with Big Teeth plunges into the concerns, anxieties, hopes, and dreams of African-Americans at a moment of crisis for the soul of Harlem—and America. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,800 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Nollywood Stars by Noah A. Tsika Book Summary:

In this comprehensive study of Nollywood stardom around the world, Noah A. Tsika explores how the industry's top on-screen talents have helped Nollywood to expand beyond West Africa and into the diaspora to become one of the globe's most prolific and diverse media producers. Carrying VHS tapes and DVDs onto airplanes and publicizing new methods of film distribution, the stars are active agents in the global circulation of Nollywood film. From Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde's cameo role on VH1's popular series Hit the Floor to Oge Okoye's startling impersonation of Lady Gaga, this book follows Nollywood stars from Lagos to London, Ouagadougou, Cannes, Paris, Porto-Novo, Sekondi-Takoradi, Dakar, Accra, Atlanta, Houston, New York, and Los Angeles. Tsika tracks their efforts to integrate into various entertainment cultures, but never to the point of effacing their African roots.

In an Iron Glove by Claire Martin Book Summary:

Claire Martin's autobiography was first published in two volumes in 1965 and 1966. Already a prize winning Quebec writer, the author generated a wave of controversy with this detailed account of a childhood subjected to cruelty and brutality. Her deeply moving portrayal drew acclaim from readers who saw aspects of their own childhood experiences mirrored in its pages; it also evoked resistance from traditionalists unsettled by its exposé of family, church, and convent school some decades before the Quiet Revolution. Written with the passion of one who has known harsh injustices, this memoir nevertheless reflects the steady focus and narrative skill of an seasoned writer. With a richly descriptive style and deft ironic touch, Claire Martin tells her own unforgettable story of a young person confronting and finally emerging from the oppressions of unrestrained malign authority.

The Old Man and the Medal by Ferdinand Oyono Book Summary:

Writing in French in the 1950s, Ferdinand Léopold Oyono (1929–2010) had only a brief literary career, but his anticolonialist novels are considered classics of twentieth-century African literature. Like Oyono’s Houseboy, also available from Waveland Press, this novel fiercely satirizes the false pretenses of European colonial rule in Africa. Meka, a village elder, has always been loyal to the white man. It is with pride that he first hears he is to receive a medal. While waiting for the ceremony, however, Meka’s pride gives way to skepticism. At the same time, his wife has realized that the medal is being given to her husband as compensation for the sacrifices they have made. The events following the ceremony confirm Meka’s new estimation of the white man. Both subtle and oftentimes humorous, this beautifully told story lays bare the hollowness of the mission in Africa. It fuels opportunities for discussing colonial politics around class and race as well as for exploring indigenous Cameroon life and values.

Sonic Space in Djibril Diop Mambety's Films by Vlad Dima Book Summary:

The art of Senegalese director Djibril Diop Mambety's cinema lies in the tension created between the visual narrative and the aural narrative. His work has been considered hugely influential, and his films bridge Western practices of filmmaking and oral traditions from West Africa. Mambety's film Touki Bouki is considered one of the foundational works of African cinema. Vlad Dima proposes a new reading of Mambety's entire filmography from the perspective of sound. Following recent analytical patterns in film studies that challenge the primacy of the visual, Dima claims that Mambety uses voices, noise, and silence as narrative tools that generate their own stories and sonic spaces. By turning an ear to cinema, Dima pushes African aesthetics to the foreground of artistic creativity and focuses on the critical importance of sound in world cinema.

“For fans of Kate Morton and Daphne du Maurier, Black Rabbit Hall is an obvious must-read.”—Bookpage A secret history. A long-ago summer. A house with an untold story. Amber Alton knows that the hours pass differently at Black Rabbit Hall, her London family’s Cornish country house, where no two clocks read the same. Summers there are perfect, timeless. Not much ever happens. Until, one terrible day, it does. More than three decades later, Lorna is determined to be married within the grand, ivy-covered walls of Pencraw Hall, known as Black Rabbit Hall among the locals. But as she’s drawn deeper into the overgrown grounds, she soon finds herself ensnared within the house’s labyrinthine history, overcome with a need for answers about her own past and that of the once-golden family whose memory still haunts the estate. Eve Chase's debut novel is a thrilling spiral into the hearts of two women separated by decades but inescapably linked by the dark and tangled secrets of Black Rabbit Hall.

De la littérature coloniale à la littérature africaine by Riesz Jànos Book Summary:

La littérature africaine en langues européennes est confrontée, depuis ses origines, à une masse de textes issus de la littérature coloniale d'une grande variété tant par les genres et la thématique que par le talent de leurs auteurs. L'évolution de la littérature africaine peut être décrite comme processus de positionnement et d'émancipation face à cette vaste " bibliothèque coloniale ". Nous ne voulons pas nier l'influence des langues et cultures africaines indigènes respectives sur les littératures europhones naissantes. Mais elles sont spécifiques et se rapportent à la langue/culture d'origine de chaque auteur ou groupe d'auteurs, tandis que les clivages par rapport aux littératures européennes parlant de l'Afrique sont communs à des auteurs venant de langues et cultures différentes. Situer les littératures africaines en langues européennes par rapport aux littératures européennes de l'époque coloniale et post coloniale, c'est souligner leur unité : " On se pose en s'opposant ", selon la célèbre formule de Sartre. La langue du colonisateur, enseignée à l'école (ou à l'église ou à l'armée) et intériorisée par des procédés tels que la " récitation " ou la mémorisation, transporte avec elle des conceptions multiformes allant d'une imagerie à un répertoire de savoir populaire, incrusté dans des locutions figées et des métaphores qui ne sont plus perçues comme telles, à une vision du monde qui règle et détermine la vie en société aussi bien que les relations avec autrui, depuis les relations personnelles jusqu'aux rapports de forces entre collectivités : des jalousies individuelles aux rivalités économiques, querelles territoriales jusqu'aux guerres civiles et entre nations.

Reimagining Liberation by Annette K. Joseph-Gabriel Book Summary:

Black women living in the French empire played a key role in the decolonial movements of the mid-twentieth century. Thinkers and activists, these women lived lives of commitment and risk that landed them in war zones and concentration camps and saw them declared enemies of the state. Annette K. Joseph-Gabriel mines published writings and untapped archives to reveal the anticolonialist endeavors of seven women. Though often overlooked today, Suzanne Césaire, Paulette Nardal, Eugénie Éboué-Tell, Jane Vialle, Andrée Blouin, Aoua Kéita, and Eslanda Robeson took part in a forceful transnational movement. Their activism and thought challenged France's imperial system by shaping forms of citizenship that encouraged multiple cultural and racial identities. Expanding the possibilities of belonging beyond national and even Francophone borders, these women imagined new pan-African and pan-Caribbean identities informed by black feminist intellectual frameworks and practices. The visions they articulated also shifted the idea of citizenship itself, replacing a single form of collective identity and political participation with an expansive plurality of forms of belonging.

À partir d'exemples concrets, l'auteur étudie les évolutions d'une politique paradoxale qui préconisait, dans les années 1970, l'instauration de quotas d'immigrés, renvoyait la prise en charge de ces travailleurs et familles à l'État et aux employeurs, tout en faisant profession d'antiracisme et de solidarité.

Decolonizing Translation by Kathryn Batchelor Book Summary:

The linguistically innovative aspect of Francophone African literature has been recognized and studied from a variety of angles over recent decades, yet little attention has been paid to what happens to such literature when it is translated into another language. Taking as its corpus all sub-Saharan Francophone African texts that have ever been published in English, this book explores the ways in which translators approach innovative features such as African-language borrowings, neologisms and other deliberate manipulations of French, depictions of sociolinguistic variation, and a variety of types of wordplay. The implications of their translation decisions are drawn out with reference to the broader significances that are often accorded to postcolonial literature, and earlier critics' calls for a decolonized translation practice are explored from both a practical and theoretical angle. These findings are used to push towards a detailed investigation of the postcolonial turn in translation studies, drawing on the work of key postcolonial theorists such has Homi K. Bhabha and Gayatri Spivak. This is a timely and incisive critical assessment of contemporary discourses on the ethics and politics of translation.

Dieu dans la littérature africaine by Guillén Preckler Fernando Book Summary:

L'analyse theologique des oeuvres litteraires revet un interet non negligeable pour la connaissance et l'evangelisation des cultures. Le present essai s'inscrit dans cette ligne en analysant trois romans majeurs de la litterature africaine du 20e siecle: Les bouts de bois de Dieu d'Ousmane Sembene, L'aventure ambigue de Cheikh Hamidou Kane et Le pauvre Christ de Bomba de Mongo Beti. Les trois auteurs jouissent d'une speciale renommee dans le vaste panorama de la litterature africaine. Nous notons la presence de deux senegalais et un camerounais, notre travail etant limite a ces pays. D'autre part ils representent differents univers spirituels and culturels. Ousmane Sembene a ete un auteur prolifique et aussi un directeur de cinema. Il represente la litterature engagee et sociale. Cheikh Hamidou Kane provient de la tradition islamique du Nord Senegal; il a assume de grandes responsabilites politiques et culturelles depuis le temps du president Senghor. Avec lui, nous cotoyons le drame de l'Afrique aux prises avec la culture occidentale. Mongo Beti est un camerounais inquiet qui a milite dans l'opposition et a connu l'exil. Eduque dans les missions catholiques, il est devenu un opposant a la foi, attache a la gauche francaise, mais avec une inspiration profondement africaine. A travers ces pages, nous nous proposons de poursuivre de facon tres modeste le chef d'oeuvre de Charles Moeller, veritable pionnier de l'analyse theologique des productions culturelles, et nous rapprocher ainsi de la premiere generation africaine qui a connu la foi chretienne. Cela pourra rendre un service efficace au moment de la nouvelle evangelisation demandee par Africae Munus (nn. 159-171).

A travers ces pages, nous nous proposons de poursuivre de facon tres modeste le chef d'oeuvre de Charles Moeller, veritable pionnier de l'analyse theologique des productions culturelles, et nous rapprocher ainsi de la premiere generation africaine qui a connu la foi chretienne. Cela pourra rendre un service efficace au moment de la nouvelle evangelisation demandee par Africae Munus (nn. 159-171).

LA VIE SOCIALE À DAKAR (1945-1960) by Cheik Faty Faye Book Summary:

Dakar est cette métropole créée par le colonisateur à la fin du XIXe siècle pour pouvoir administrer judicieusement le vaste ensemble terrtitorial conquis dans l'ouest-africain. Son développement rapide n'a été que le résultat de facteurs divers et favorables. Lorsque le second conflit mondial éclate, logiquement sa participation est attendue anxieusement par les tenants du pouvoir républicain d'abord, vichyste ensuite, gaulliste plus tard. Lorsque le conflit se termine, l'espoir du lendemain meilleur se dessine. Au résultat, c'est une transmission en douceur qui a lieu en 1960, date des indépendances africaines.
