Readers of Alain Mabanckou’s previous novels, from Broken Glass to Memoirs of a Porcupine, know how his unmistakable style is made of drollery and sarcasm. In Tomorrow I’ll be Twenty (Serpent’s Tail, 2013), his latest novel to be published in English, the Franco-Congolese adds tenderness to his signature ironic tone. Through Michel, his young alter ego, Mabanckou mischievously recalls his childhood in the port-city of Pointe-Noire, on the Atlantic coast of Congo-Brazzaville.
