With a great humour, Alain Mabanckou, who currently lives in Paris and Santa Monica, narrates the biographies of Congoles underdogs who have to deal with the debris of a colonial history as well as with the corruption and bureaucracy of the contemporary Congolese elite. In his novel »Mathématique Congolaises« In Koli Jean Bofane describes the rhythm of day-to-day life in Kinshasa. In a highly entertaining manner, the main character tries to bring order to the chaos surrounding him and to make the turbulent and confusing world around him calculable. Robinson Solo is known for her poetry slamming. Her live performances are her philosophy of life, her way of expressing her »passport to freedom«.
