This is a satirical novel about a fictitious African dictator, which interweaves myth with colonial and postcolonial history and a brutal sense of humor. I thought it was about 200 pages too long and overly repetitive, particularly in its weaker second half. A much better satirical novel about dictatorship in Africa is "Wizard of the Crow" by Ngugi wa Thiong'o.
