A police inspector is investigating a strange murder, a case in
which all the suspects are eager to claim responsibility for the
act. Set in a former Portuguese fort which stored slaves and ivory,
Under the Frangipani combines fable and allegory, dreams and myths
with an earthy humour. The dead meet the living, language is
invented, reality is constantly changing. In a story which is
partly a thriller, partly an exploration of language itself, Mia
Couto surprises and delights, and shows just why he is one of the
most important African writers of today.
