Críticas

«Jean Rolin posee un enorme talento tanto para los angeles parodia humorística como para l. a. exhaustiva y melancólica prospección y exploración de geografías periféricas y marginales, aliadas a personajes no menos atípicos.» Mercedes Monmany (ABC)

«Pocos libros me han sumergido de forma tan incisiva, tan irónica y tan visceral en los angeles locura de Los Ángeles como este rapto de Britney Spears.» Jesús Ferrero (Babelia, El País)

«El rapto... es una gloriosa muestra de fusión entre crónica periodística y ficción, literatura contemporánea de alto voltaje y calado dominada por un humor tan inteligente como melancólico que ironiza con l. a. acumulación de menudencias que componen nuestro mundo. No hace falta ser fan de Britney para leer este libro, aunque al ultimate queda claro que meterla en el título es un acto (político) contra el (pseudo) elitismo cultural. Fan.» Philipp Engel (Qué Leer)

Das Bauprojekt "Marching to Heaven" jedoch kann nur mit einem Kredit der worldwide financial institution in long island realisiert werden.

Als Titus Tajirika zum ersten Vorsitzenden des Baukomitees für "Marching to Heaven" ernannt wird, bilden sich vor dessen Büro zwei endlose Warteschlangen - eine aus denjenigen, die auch ein Stück vom Kuchen abbekommen wollen (indem sie Umschläge voller Bargeld zurücklassen), und eine, die sich aus den zahllosen Arbeitslosen des Landes speist. Diese Menschenschlangen entwickeln sich bald zu einer landesweiten Epidemie.

Während der Herrscher und sein Außenminister Machokali in die united states reisen, um positiv auf die Vertreter der worldwide financial institution einzuwirken, gerät Tajirika ins Blickfeld von Staatsminister Sikiokuu. Die Delegation in big apple hingegen sieht sich einer plötzlich auftretenden, rätselhaften Krankheit des Herrschers gegenüber. Hoffnung verspricht allein der unfreiwillig zu Ruhm und Ansehen aufgestiegene Herr der Krähen - ein Zauberer, Heiler und Wahrsager...

"Herr der Krähen" ist eine lebendige, ausdrucksstarke Satire über den Prototyp des afrikanischen Despoten, die mit tiefgründigem Humor die Lebensbedingungen in einer zunehmend globalisierten Welt thematisiert. Ngugi wa Thiong'o gelingt mit diesem Roman eine umfassende Parabel auf die sozialen, politischen und kulturellen Verhältnisse auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent und dessen Beziehung zum Westen.
