"Blade Runner in Africa with a John Coltrane soundtrack." - Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore (Houston, TX); "Stylistically quirky and unorthodox fiction from Africa...Tram 83 is the locus of those driven by ambition, desire, greed, or pleasure and in this underworld we meet quite a cast of characters." Kirkuk Reviews; "An exuberantly dark first novel ... Evoking everyone from Brueghel to Henry Miller to Celine, Fiston plunges us into a world so anarchic it would leave even Ted Cruz begging for more government... Rather than moralize, he transfigures harsh reality with a bounding, inventive, bebop-style prose, translated from the French with light-footed skill by Roland Glasser." John Powers, NPR's Fresh Air w/ Terry Gross
