When army officer Chike Ameobi is ordered to kill innocent civilians, he knows that it is time to leave. As he travels towards Lagos, he becomes the leader of a new platoon, a band of runaways who share his desire for a better life. Their arrival in the city coincides with the eruption of a political scandal. The education minister, Chief Sandayo, has disappeared and is suspected of stealing millions of dollars from government funds. After an unexpected encounter with the Chief, Chike and his companions must make a choice. Ahmed Bakare, editor of the failing Nigerian Journal, is desperate for information. But perhaps the situation is more complex than it appears. As moving as it is mesmerising, Welcome to Lagos is a novel about the power of our dreams for the future and the place of morality in a sometimes hostile world.

Harrison, onze ans, originaire du Ghana, arrive en Angleterre accompagné de sa grande sœur et de sa mère. En attendant le reste de la famille, ils essaient de s'adapter à leur nouvel environnement qui n'a plus rien à voir avec leur Afrique natale : béton armé, HLM décrépis, guerre des gangs... Cette banlieue londonienne est l’une des plus dures et des plus violentes. Le quotidien de notre jeune héros s’accélère lorsqu’un matin il découvre le cadavre d'un adolescent poignardé dans une ruelle de sa cité. L'affaire fait grand bruit et Harrison décide de mener l'enquête, de faire toute la lumière sur ce meurtre sanglant. Assisté de son meilleur ami et d'un pigeon qui devient son confident, il se transforme en un expert du crime. Mais il se révèle très doué, trop doué même, les vrais coupables voient d'un mauvais œil ce petit fouineur... Le pigeon anglais est un roman enlevé, drôle et caustique, qui oscille entre comédie et tragédie. À travers les yeux d’un enfant, l’auteur nous livre un récit tristement actuel traitant de sujets difficiles tels que l'intégration ratée, l'abandon social, l'acculturation et la fascination pour la violence d’une jeunesse qui perd tout contact avec la réalité.

Roman éblouissant à l'érudition joueuse, célébrant la beauté et la détresse de Beyrouth, Les Vies de papier est une véritable déclaration d'amour à la littérature. Aaliya Saleh, 72 ans, les cheveux bleus, a toujours refusé les carcans imposés par la société libanaise. À l'ombre des murs anciens de son appartement, elle s'apprête pour son rituel préféré. Chaque année, le 1er janvier, après avoir allumé deux bougies pour Walter Benjamin, cette femme irrévérencieuse et un brin obsessionnelle commence à traduire en arabe l'une des œuvres de ses romanciers préférés : Kafka, Pessoa ou Nabokov. À la fois refuge et " plaisir aveugle ", la littérature est l'air qu'elle respire, celui qui la fait vibrer comme cet opus de Chopin qu'elle ne cesse d'écouter. C'est entourée de livres, de cartons remplis de papiers, de feuilles volantes de ses traductions qu'Aaliya se sent vivante. Cheminant dans les rues, Aaliya se souvient ; de l'odeur de sa librairie, des conversations avec son amie Hannah, de ses lectures à la lueur de la bougie tandis que la guerre faisait rage, de la ville en feu, de l'imprévisibilité de Beyrouth. Roman éblouissant à l'érudition joueuse, célébrant la beauté et la détresse de Beyrouth, Les Vies de papier est une véritable déclaration d'amour à la littérature. Finaliste du National Book Award 2014 et du National Book Critics Circle Award 2015, et lauréat du California Book Award 2015

Noo Saro-Wiwa was brought up in England, but every summer she was dragged back to Nigeria - a country she viewed as an annoying parallel universe where she had to relinquish all her creature comforts and sense of individuality. Then her father, activist Ken Saro-Wiwa, was murdered there, and she didn't return for 10 years. Recently, she decided to rediscover and come to terms with the country her father loved. She travelled from the exuberant chaos of Lagos to the calm beauty of the eastern mountains; from the eccentricity of a Nigerian dog show to the empty Transwonderland Amusement Park - Nigeria's decrepit and deserted answer to Disneyland. She explored Nigerian christianity, delved into its history of slavery, examined the corrupting effect of oil, investigated Nollywood. She found the country as exasperating as ever, and frequently despaired at the corruption and inefficiency she encountered. But she also discovered that it was far more beautiful and varied than she had ever imagined, and was seduced by its thick tropical rainforest and ancient palaces and monuments. Most engagingly of all she introduces us to the people she meets, and gives us hilarious insights into the Nigerian character, its passion, wit and ingenuity.
