God’s Bits of Wood by Ousmane Sembène
In 1947 the workers on the Dakar-Niger Railway came out on strike. Throughout this novel, written from the workers’ perspective, the community social tensions emerge, and increase as the strike lengthens.
Ousmane Sembène envinces the color, passion, and tragedy of those formative years in the history of West Africa.
