Passage of tears by Abdourahman A Waberi( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Djibouti, a hot, impoverished little country on the Horn of Africa, is a place of great strategic importance, for off its coast lies a crucial 'passage' for the world's oil. Djibril, a young Djiboutian voluntarily exiled in Montreal, returns to his native land to prepare a report for an American economic intelligence firm. Meanwhile, a shadowy, threatening figure imprisoned in an island cell seems to know Djibril's every move. He takes dictation from his preaching cellmate known as his 'Venerable Master' but, as the words are put on the page, a completely different text appears--the life of Walter Benjamin, Djibril's favorite author"-
The land without shadows by Abdourahman A Waberi( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in French and English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in France in 1994, this newly translated collection presents stories about the precolonial and colonial past of Djibouti alongside those set in the postcolonial era. With irony and humor, these short stories portray madmen, poets, artists, French colonists, pseudointellectuals, young women, aspiring politicians, famished refugees, khat chewers, nomads struggling to survive in Djibouti's ruthless natural environment, or tramps living (and dying) in Balbala, the shantytown that stretches to the south of the capital--Cover

15 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Waiting at the Paris airport, two immigrants from Djibouti reveal parallel stories of war, child soldiers, arms trafficking, drugs, and hunger...This brilliantly shrewd and cynical universal chronicle of war and exile, translated into English for the first time, amounts to a lyrical and reflective history of Djibouti and its tortuous politics, crippled economy, and devastated moral landscape"--Cover p. [4]

La divine chanson : roman by Myriam Harry( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Divine Chanson est un roman, un roman amoureux qui s'empare d'une vie exemplaire, celle d'un chanteur, compositeur, poète afro-américain né à Chicago en 1949, dont nul ne saurait méconnaître l'immense génie et la rude destinée : Gil Scott-Heron, réinventé ici sous le nom de Sammy l'enchanteur. Décidément plus humain que bien des bipèdes, c'est un vieux chat roux recueilli dans une rue de Harlem qui nous entraîne, partout où la Divine Chanson continue de tourner, à travers les ghettos noirs ou sur les scènes internationales du jazz ce "grand courant électrique qui rivalise avec le Gulf Stream". Et ce n'est pas un moindre mérite du roman que de nous faire découvrir et aimer ce "Bob Dylan noir", depuis l'arrière-pays de l'enfance, "quelque part entre Clarksdale, Mississippi et Savannah, Tennessee", dans le solide giron de Lily, la grand-mère tant aimée, jusqu'aux années de fulgurance. Au terme de ce mémorable et bouleversant voyage, la Divine Chanson ne nous quittera plus."
