25-year old Bangali, affectionately known as BB, is the son of the Imam of Conakry. Bangali has recently been appointed to succeed his father, and is expected to go on a preparatory trip to Saudi Arabia. But BB has kept secrets from his father - both about his job as a political cartoonist at a liberal newspaper, and about his relationship with a young woman from a middle-class family. A humorous, lyrical, and engaging, yet thoughtful and impassioned peek at contemporary urban Africa against a backdrop where an abnormally long and severe drought only accentuates the pervasive political and religious tensions
