Small Country Gaël Faye

A Séance for a Past Self

In Small Country, Gaël Faye captures the loss of innocence through the eyes of an eleven-year-old boy as a dark chapter engulfs Burundi and Rwanda. The tremor within the novel however is that we discover the past to be not just a memory, but a living breathing thing we carry throughout our lives.
