* Confession of the Lioness by Mia Couto


Confession of the Lioness is a poetic, dreamlike story of a village in Mozambique plagued by lions — or is it brutal men? The government dispatches a bashful hunter and a journalist to dispatch the lions and a wonderfully drawn official and his wife to take care of the problem.

If you like slow and magical, you may have the patience required for this story.
