Weer typisch een juweel van Agualusa. Het is het jaar 2020 in Luanda, de hoofdstad van Angola. Voor de voeten van documentairemaker en schrijver Bartolomeu Falcato en zijn minnares Kianda, een bekende zangeres, valt een schitterende vrouw te pletter. Met deze scène begint Het labyrint van Luanda, dat zowel over het hedendaagse Angola gaat als over de toekomst van dat land. De gouden jaren van de aardolie zijn voorbij maar de diamanthandel maakt nog velen rijk, en het van corruptie doordrenkte land is een bizarre smeltkroes geworden van donkere bezweringsrituelen en riante penthouses. Bartolomeu Falcato vertelt over zijn stukgelopen huwelijk en zijn affaire met Kianda, die tot de tragische ontdekking komt dat zij aan keelkanker lijdt en zonder haar stem verder moet leven. Het labyrint van Luanda is typisch een juweel van Agualusa: poëtisch en precies, vol muziek, hoop en amusement. Met deze roman bewijst de auteur opnieuw de kronieken van zijn land met kleur en smaak te kunnen vertellen.

Luanda, Angola, 1990. Ndalu is a normal twelve-year old boy in an extraordinary time and place. Like his friends, he enjoys laughing at his teachers, avoiding homework and telling tall tales. But Ndalu's teachers are Cuban, his homework assignments include writing essays on the role of the workers and peasants, and the tall tales he and his friends tell are about a criminal gang called Empty Crate which specializes in attacking schools. Ndalu is mystified by the family servant, Comrade Antonio, who thinks that Angola worked better when it was a colony of Portugal, and by his Aunt Dada, who lives in Portugal and doesn't know what a ration card is. In a charming voice that is completely original, Good Morning Comrades tells the story of a group of friends who create a perfect childhood in a revolutionary socialist country fighting a bitter war. But the world is changing around these children, and like all childhood's Ndalu's cannot last. An internationally acclaimed novel, already published in half a dozen countries, Good Morning Comrades is an unforgettable work of fiction by one of Africa's most exciting young writers.

"A totally absorbing book...imaginative and erudite, full of startling juxtapositions and flashes of real perception."—Jonathan D. Spence John E. Wills's masterful history ushers us into the worlds of 1688, from the suicidal exaltation of Russian Old Believers to the ravishing voice of the haiku poet Basho. Witness the splendor of the Chinese imperial court as the Kangxi emperor publicly mourns the death of his grandmother and shrewdly consolidates his power. Join the great caravans of Muslims on their annual pilgrimage from Damascus and Cairo to Mecca. Walk the pungent streets of Amsterdam and enter the Rasp House, where vagrants, beggars, and petty criminals labored to produce powdered brazilwood for the dyeworks. Through these stories and many others, Wills paints a detailed picture of how the global connections of power, money, and belief were beginning to lend the world its modern form. "A vivid picture of life in 1688...filled with terrifying violence, frightening diseases...comfortingly familiar human kindnesses...and the intellectual achievements of Leibniz, Locke, and Newton."—Publishers Weekly

A captivating blend of magical realism, scathing political satire, tender comedy, and literary experimentation, Transparent City offers a gripping and joyful portrait of urban Africa quite unlike any before yet published in English, and places Ondjaki, indisputably, among the continent’s most accomplished writers.
