Describes, both factually and fictionally, the life of a stonecutter in medieval Europe.
Alain Mabanckou revisite en profondeur un certain nombre de lieux fondateurs de la littérature et de la culture africaines, avec amour, humour et dérision. Parodiant librement une légende populaire selon laquelle chaque être humain possède son double animal, il nous livre dans ce récit l'histoire d'un étonnant porc-épic, chargé par son alter ego humain, un certain Kibandi, d'accomplir à l'aide de ses redoutables piquants toute une série de meurtres rocambolesques. Malheur aux villageois qui se retrouvent sur la route de Kibandi, car son ami porc-épic est prêt à tout pour satisfaire la folie sanguinaire de son "maître" ! En détournant avec brio et malice les codes narratifs de la fable, Alain Mabanckou renouvelle les formes traditionnelles du conte africain dans un récit truculent et picaresque où se retrouvent l'art de l'ironie et la verve inventive qui font de lui une des voix majeures de la littérature francophone actuelle.
