Tsitsi Dangarembga

Gaël Faye paints a disturbing picture of the way in which the 1990s genocide in Rwanda stretched its tentacles out into neighbouring Burundi, disrupting 11-year old Gabriel's privileged life in an upmarket suburb of the country's capital city.  It is a novel of the pernicious social breakdown without relief which besets too many African states.
