Product Description

For me, the brutal forms of dictatorship we currently find on the African continent could only exist in republics vacated by custodians of the alphabet, in republics that became meaningless because writers were missing. Those republics were voided by force, because most African writers live dangerously in their country of origin and had to leave the place as their letters mean nothing in front of guns, if you think of it. But they were also voided of writers because of the tactical republicanism of most African writers of the first generation.

"a writer and an alphabet" by Patrice Nganangin pulsations
is a new and innovative semiannual journal of new African writing in French and English.
