Rosie Carpe by Marie NDiaye( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If it seems unlikely that the feckless Lazare, missing for five years as he followed his own twisted path, might help, or that carnivalesque Guadeloupe, where murder and mayhem are the natural outcomes of "business ventures," might be the place for Rosie to find peace, then Marie NDiaye may have a few surprises in store for her reader. Amid the blurring boundaries and shifting values, the indistinct realities and confusing certainties of Rosie Carpe, a love story unfolds, and all that is ambiguous and tenuous - in short, all of Rosie's world - is underpinned with a measure of tenderness."--Jacket

Living in an increasingly violent neighborhood, Simone and Claude are locked into mutual isolation and grief over Claude's terminal cancer, until the arrival of a young boy upsets their routine and brings hope to their lives
Dark heart of the night by Léonora Miano( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is Africa's own "heart of darkness"? It is what confronts Ayane when, after three years abroad, she returns to the Central African village of her birth. Now an "outsider" with foreign ways distrusted by her fellow villagers, she must face alone the customs and superstitions that bind this clan of men and women. When invading militia organize a horrific ceremony that they claim will help reunite Africa, Ayane is forced to confront the monstrosity of the act that follows, as well as the responsibility that all the villagers must bear for silently accepting evil done in their name." "Through Ayane's unwilling witness, Leonora Miano probes the themes of submission and responsibility and questions the role of Africans in the suffering of their fellows. Also exploring African identity, Dark Heart of the Night is a profoundly disturbing novel in its evocation of the darkest side of people driven by their instinct to survive."--Jacket
