The amputated memory : a song-novel by Werewere Liking ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Winner of UNESCO's Noma Award for publishing in Africa, this breakthrough novel draws on Liking's personal experience coming-of-age in Cameroon, West Africa, in the late 1950s, caught between tradition and modernity, family and the nationalist independence movement. Growing up in an extended tribal community, Halla is close with her powerful father, and she follows him when he leaves, even though he rapes her, and she gives birth to his baby. Later, supported by her strong grandmother, she breaks free, attends a missionary school, reads about the collaboration made by Cameroon rulers, including her own father, joins the anticolonialist resistance movement, and finds independence as a writer

Elle sera de jaspe et de corail by Werewere Liking ( Book )
10 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in French and Undetermined and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En ce roman trois voix sont mêlées. Ecoutons celle de Lunaï, village qui végète et qui s'abîme dans une désespérance morne ; celle qui, en contrepoint, s'élève, élégiaque, célébrant une humanité autre à venir, en sa lumière, et aussi, au confluent, celle d'une femme, témoin vigilant et critique, " misovire ". Polyphonie, " entrechoc " des styles, contraste du lyrique et du satirique se fondent dans l'unité d'une oeuvre aboutie. Après Orphée-Dafric, le second roman de Werewere Liking est d'une novation formelle et thématique peut commune dans la littérature africaine, tout en s'enracinant profondément dans la tradition de l'Afrique
