Product description

Review

"Is the funny bone a literary erogenous zone? Anyone who thinks so will certainly be turned on by Henri Lopes' The Laughing Cry . . . this writer has the same feel for the literary burlesque that Woody Allen has for the
philosophical kvetch." --San Francisco Examiner

"Satirical, tender, bawdy, savage, and fi lled with love and hope." --The Washington Post

"Mr Lopes has both the experience to give his work its grounding in reality and suffi cient distance to give his contempt its cutting edge." --New York Times Book Review

"Beaumarchais . . . Diderot . . . what on earth, you may ask, has the eighteenth century got to do with a political satire about contemporary Africa? . . . Lopes' satirical style, with its mixture of ribaldry and cruelty, does hark back to the forthright age of Swift and Voltaire." --BBC World Service Book Talks

"Superb book . . . done in fluent translation." --Publishers' Weekly

Synopsis

Satirizes African politics through the story of the adventures of the dictator Marshal Hannibal-Ideloy Bwakamabe Na Sakkade.
