Summary
Waiting for the Vote of the Wild Animals, introduces English-language audiences to Kourouma's irreverent view of the machinations of the African dictators who played the West against the East during the thirty years of the cold war. Profiting from Western financial support, the dictators built palaces, shrines, and hunting preserves for their personal gratification as they paraded about with numerous mistreses and advisors.
