              Astonishingly good. --Lily Meyer, NPR So incantatory and visceral I don't think I'll ever forget it. --Ali Smith, The Guardian Best Books of 2020 One of the Wall Street Journal's 11 best books of the fall A Sunday Times best book of the year Named a most anticipated book by Liter...ary Hub Electric Literature The Millions Refinery29 One of The A.V. Club's five best books of November Selected by students across France to win the Prix Goncourt des Lyceens, David Diop's English-language, historical fiction debut At Night All Blood is Black is a powerful, hypnotic, and dark novel (Livres Hebdo) of terror and transformation in the trenches of the First World War. Alfa Ndiaye is a Senegalese man who, never before having left his village, finds himself fighting as a so-called Chocolat soldier with the French army during World War I. When his friend Mademba Diop, in the same regiment, is seriously injured in battle, Diop begs Alfa to kill him and spare him the pain of a long and agonizing death in No Man's Land. Unable to commit this mercy killing, madness creeps into Alfa's mind as he comes to see this refusal as a cruel moment of cowardice. Anxious to avenge the death of his friend and find forgiveness for himself, he begins a macabre ritual: every night he sneaks across enemy lines to find and murder a blue-eyed German soldier, and every night he returns to base, unharmed, with the German's severed hand. At first his comrades look at Alfa's deeds with admiration, but soon rumors begin to circulate that this super soldier isn't a hero, but a sorcerer, a soul-eater. Plans are hatched to get Alfa away from the front, and to separate him from his growing collection of hands, but how does one reason with a demon, and how far will Alfa go to make amends to his dead friend? Peppered with bullets and black magic, this remarkable novel fills in a forgotten chapter in the history of World War I.

              La mort de Belle (Paperback)

              By Simenon, Georges; Dieudonne, Adeline; Diop, David

              L'existence de Spencer Ashby, paisible professeur dans une bourgade de la region new-yorkaise, s'ecroule un beau matin lorsqu'on decouvre chez lui le cadavre de Belle, la fille d'une amie de sa femme, leur invitee pour quelque temps. Il est le principal suspect... Cet homme naif,... timide, quelque peu complexe, va connaitre l'humiliation des interrogatoires policiers, l'ostracisme de ses collegues et l'hostilite de la petit ville. Lorsqu'il apprend qu'aucune charge n'est retenue contre lui, il se croit tire d'affaires. C'est a ce moment-la pourtant que sa vie va basculer dans la tragedie. Comment un individu peut etre profondement traumatise, au point de devenir le meurtrier qu'on l'a accuse d'etre: c'est ce que nous relate, dans l'univers etroit et mesquin de la petite ville, le romancier de Lettre a mon juge et du Petit Homme d'Arkhangelsk.
