The radiance of the king by Laye Camara( Book )

85 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the beginning of this book, a masterpiece of African literature, Clarence, a white man, has been shipwrecked and stranded on the coast of Africa. Brimful of self-importance, he demands to see the king, but the king has just left for the south of his realm. Traveling through an increasingly phantasmagoric landscape in the company of a beggar and two roguish boys, Clarence is slowly stripped of his pretensions, until he is sold as a slave to the royal harem. But in the end Clarence's bewildering journey is the occasion of a revelation, as he discovers the image, both shameful and beautiful, of his own strange humanity in the alien figure of the king."

The dark child by Laye Camara( Book )

72 editions published between 1954 and 1994 in 4 languages and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] is a ... memoir of [the author's] youth in the village of Koroussa, French Guinea, a place steeped in mystery. [He] marvels over his mother's supernatural powers, his father's distinction as the village goldsmith, and his own passage into manhood, which is marked by animistic beliefs and bloody rituals of primeval origin. Eventually, he must choose between this unique place and the academic success that lures him to distant cities. More than the autobiography of one boy, this is the universal story of sacred traditions struggling against the encroachment of a modern world.-Back cover
