Two friends, one a budding writer home from Europe, the other an ambitious racketeer, meet in the only nightclub, the Tram 83, in a war-torn city-state in secession, surrounded by profit-seekers of all languages and nationalities. “Tram 83” plunges the reader into the modern African gold rush as cynical as it is comic and colorfully exotic, using jazz rhythms to weave a tale of human relationships in a world that has become a global village.
Fiston Mwanza Mujila (b.1981, Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo) is a poet, dramatist, and scholar. “Tram 83” is his award-winning and raved-about debut novel that caused a literary sensation when published in France in August 2014.
