Yaka by Pepetela( Book )

49 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The white community in Benguela in 1890 was an explosive mixture of ex-convicts, political exiles, republicans, anarchists and colonial officials. Most were united only in their fear of uprisings and a desire to get rich quick. Through the saga of the Semedo family, Yaka gives a panoramic view of events that shaped Angola over the following century. From the nineteenth century penal colony, through slavery, African uprisings and land expropriation, Yaka charts the formation of a nation. The enigmatic Yaka statue owned by the Semedo family provides an unexpected commentary

12 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in Portuguese and Spanish and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El sombrero del sur es una novela de madurez que recoge más de cuarenta años de trabajo literario y que constituye una formulación sistémica de la obra de Pepetela, con la que su escritura se inscribe en tradiciones pasadas y con perspectivas futuras. La historia de Angola es vista aquí desde el siglo XVI con ojos del siglo XXI, en un relato que presenta los recorridos vitales de personajes que a cada paso van trazando el mapa de la nación futura, anclados en el umbral entre la memoria y la esperanza y asechados por una violencia sanguinaria y heredada."--
