.26 6.00 x 9.00 6.00 x 9.00 Babi Yar Symphony G.D. Nyamndi Babi Yar Symphony G.D. Nyamndi Langaa Research and Publishing Common Initiative Group P.O. Box 902 Mankon Bamenda North West Province Cameroon This unique work lifts the African question out of the dust. Against the backdrop of prison life, it explores the complex reality of being an African in today’s world. Through the tight sensitivity and illuminating knowledge of its two principal characters, themselves victims of misplaced justice, greed and lust, it captures the pain and sadness that almost always comes in the wake of betrayal and egotism. The work’s message is strong, and is delivered with equal strength by characters whose individual convictions also sway us to their side. We have here a new, powerful shaft of light on the landscape of recent African writing. G.D. Nyamndi is a critic, playwright and essayist of some repute. He is the author of a play collection, The Silver Lining, and of the highly acclaimed political treatise, Whether Losing Whether Winning. Babi Yar Symphony is his first novel, to be followed in the months ahead by another one, Dogs in the Sun. He teaches Language and Literature at the University of Buea in Cameroon, where he is also Head of the Department of English. In 2004 he ran for the office of President of his country and left quite an impression. Titles by Langaa RPCIG Francis B.
