    We know what France represents, Bakayoko said, and we respect it We are in no sense anti French but once again, Monsieur le directeur, this is not a question of France or of her people It is a question of employees and their employerOne of the tags I ve been using on Tumblr with increasing frequency is life is politics is life Out of all the ideas the United States has actively worked against the most, this is easily one of the top five, because what I mean by this is not The West WWe know what France represents, Bakayoko said, and we respect it We are in no sense anti French but once again, Monsieur le directeur, this is not a question of France or of her people It is a question of employees and their employerOne of the tags I ve been using on Tumblr with increasing frequency is life is politics is life Out of all the ideas the United States has actively worked against the most, this is easily one of the top five, because what I mean by this is not The West Wing or biographies of presidents or any other glamorized and commercialized rendering of an already glamorized and commercialized system of propositions and elections I m talking about what is happening in Ferguson at this very moment I...

    Vividly capturing the 1947 8 Dakar Niger railway strike, God s Bit of Wood never ceases to shock, to inspire, and to ultimately shed light on an event that truly shaped the importance of the African culture Despite its many characters and at times confusing names and places, each story of the workers and their wives, the whites and the oppressors, the beggars and the unloved, all demonstrate the immense struggle that everyone was going through during the strike and the tremendous courage it too Vividly capturing the 1947 8 Dakar Niger railway strike, God s Bit of Wood never ceases to shock, to inspire, and to ultimately shed light on an event th...

    A novel about a labor strike In Africa Hell yes The novel starts slow, and introduces a gabillion characters, like a later day Dostoevsky, but the slow build up and the endless characters are necessary, since the strike is a complicated story that needs to be told with delicacy and many individuals need to be highlighted to show the collective effort and to bring home the collective AND individual plight not to mention show us the lives of the people in order to feel their deaths, successes, A novel about a labor strike In Africa Hell yes The novel starts slow, and introduces a gabillion characters, like a later day Dostoevsky, but the slow build up and the endless characters are necessary, since the strike is a complicated story that needs to be told with delicacy and many individuals need to be highlighted to show the collective effort and to bring home the collective AND individual plight not to mention show us the lives of the people in order to feel their deaths, successes, or failures.The book, as you probably know, is about a strike in French Senegal in 19...

    Ever since they had left Thi s, the women had not stopped singing As soon as one group allowed the refrain to die, another picked it up, and new verses wereborn at the hazard of chance or inspiration, one word leading to another and each finding, in its turn, its rhythm and its place No one was very sure any longer where the song began, or if it had an ending It rolled out over its own length, like the movement of a serpent It was as long as a life.A fine book, that absolutely deserves its c Ever since they had left Thi s, the women had not stopped singing As soon as one group allowed the refrain to die, another picked it up, and new verses wereborn at the hazard of chance or inspiration, one word leading to another and each finding, in its turn, its rhythm and its place No one was very sure any longer where the song began, or if it had an ending It rolled out over its own length, like the movement of a serpent It was as long as a life.A fine bo...

    There is a bareness and sparseness to Ousmane s Senegal a place where the people have had their humanity stripped away by their colonial oppressors persecuted and down trodden, the characters find themselves fighting to re gain every aspect of what makes them human, from their language, to the culture and way of life, all of these things had been taken away by French colonists, who misguidedly viewed their exploitation as an attempt at civilisation At the core of the novel is the labour movem There is a bareness and sparseness to Ousmane s Senegal a place where the people have had their humanity stripped away by their colonial oppressors persecuted and down trodden, the characters find themselves fighting to re gain every aspect of what makes them human, from their language, to the culture and way of life, all of these things had been taken away by French colonists, who misguidedly viewed their exploitation as an attempt at civilisation At the core of the novel is the labour movement and workers rights, the dynamics of not just the colonial system, but to a lesser extent the capitalist system...

    To nick an idea I picked up from an introduction to War and Peace, this book is an excellent example of an open novel This is in opposition to the predictably named closed novel These terms merely serve to describe an aspect of the continuum between fable and history Fables are closed stories When the protagonist is introduced, their backstory is either completely explained, or irrelevant When the curtain closes and the story ends, every story arc is tied up in a neat little bow, and To nick an idea I picked up from an introduction to War and Peace, this book is an excellent example of an open novel This is in opposition to the predictably named closed novel These terms merely serve to describe an aspect of the continuum between fable and history Fables are closed stories When the protagonist is introduced, their backstory is either completely explained, or irrelevant When the curtain closes and the story ends, every story arc is tied up in a neat little bow, and they all live happily ever after There is simply nostory after that.History, meanwhile, is open Any real event the Peloponnesian War, for example , starts in medias res The men who fought in the Peloponnesian War were not born to fight it, and many had significant political lives beforehand The end of the war did mark an end of a chapter in the history of Greece, but certainly not the e...

    Sometimes foreign books in translation leave me cold, and sometimes I enjoy them although they re quite different from the novels I m used to reading, and it s hard to tell in advance which books will be which Happily, this one, written by a Senegalese author and relating the events of a labor strike in French West Africa primarily set in what is now Senegal in 1947 48, fell into the enjoyable category But it is different from your standard English language novel it s very much the story of Sometimes foreign books in translation leave me cold, and sometimes I enjoy them although they re quite different from the novels I m used to reading, and it s hard to tell in advance which books will be which Happily, this one, written by a Senegalese author and relating the events of a labor strike in French West Africa primarily set in what is now Senegal in 1947 48, fell into the enjoyable category But it is different from your standard English language novel it s very much the story of a community rather than one or two individuals though its chapters tend to focus on particular characters, the larger story follows a numerous cast in three primary locations Dakar, Thi s and Bamako It s also a book that requires patience at the beginning, as many characters are introduced, but stick with it...

    Sadly, this book is extremely unsung It is the African Grapes of Wrath, in scope, politics, relevance, and in beauty of the prose Sembene was as brilliant a film director as he was novelist This books covers not just the events of t...

    I expected to find this boring, for it to be a chore to finish 380 pages of quite dense French, on the topic of a railway strike in Senegal in 1948 But it s so wonderfully well written that it s not a chore, even ...
