At Night All Blood Is Black
Hands. Take a close look at the image of the hand on the cover of David Diop’s finely written novel titled, At Night All Blood is Black, because you are likely to retain the image of hands as you read this book. Set during World War I, the novel takes readers into the horror of trench warfare where hands will represent the madness that can take over the actions of soldiers, especially protagonist Alfa Ndiaye, who left Senegal to fight with the French. The spare prose leads readers to concentrate attention and receive images that place us in the setting of trauma. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase At Night All Blood Is Black from amazon.com.
