Overview

"An exuberantly dark first novel." -- NPR's Fresh Air w/ Terry Gross

**Nominated for the Man Booker International Prize 2016**

**Winner of the 2015 Etisalat Prize for Debut African Fiction**

Two friends, one a budding writer home from abroad, the other an ambitious racketeer, meet in the most notorious nightclub--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.
