    Paperback Ý Batouala Epub Á batouala ebok, Batouala PDFEPUBAdmired both by Hemingway and early African nationalists Batouala was the first novel by a writer of African descent to win France's highest literary prize Despite coming out in 1921 it contains many passages of unabashedly vitriolic anti colonial sentiment as well as some explicit scenes Unique and intriguing but much so if you know some context before you read it
