Description

An international sensation, Small Country is a beautiful but harrowing tale of coming-of-age in the face of civil war. ‘A luminous debut novel…Faye dramatises the terrible nostalgia of having lost not only a childhood but also a whole world to war’ Guardian Burundi, 1992. For ten-year-old Gabriel, life in his comfortable expat neighbourhood of Bujumbura with his French father, Rwandan mother and little sister, Ana, is something close to paradise. These are happy, carefree days spent with his friends sneaking cigarettes and stealing mangoes, swimming in the lake and riding bikes in the streets they have turned into their kingdom. But dark clouds are gathering over this small country, and soon their peaceful idyll will shatter when Burundi and neighbouring Rwanda are brutally hit by war. `Unforgettable… Gael Faye’s talent is breathtaking’ Imbolo Mbue, author of Behold the Dreamersshow more
