Greeted with wildly enthusiastic reviews on publication, Alain Mabanckou's riotous novel begins in an orphanage in 1970s Congo-Brazzaville run by a malicious political stooge who makes the life of our hero, Tokumisa Nzambe po Mose yamoyindo abotami namboka ya Bakoko--his name means "Let us thank God, the black Moses is born on the lands of the ancestors," but most people just call him Moses--very difficult.

Moses is also terrorized by his two fellow orphans--the twins Songi-Songi and Tala-Tala--but after Moses exacts revenge on them by lacing their food with hot pepper, the twins take Moses under their wing, escape the orphanage, and move to the bustling port town of Pointe-Noire, where they form a gang that survives on petty theft.
