Baho! (Roland Rugero)

"It is November and the heavens are naked. Ashamed, they attempt to tug a few clouds over to cover up under the merciless sun, which, with resolve, determination, and clarity, brings to light their nudity."

Burundi / 2016

This is the first Burundian novel to be translated into English! It's about the chaos and drama that ensue after a mute man's signs to a woman are mistaken for an attempt at sexual assault. It's being praised for its critique of rape culture, complex narrative style, fast pace and exploration of Burundian politics.
