Its title recalls Bret Easton Ellis s infamous book, but while Ellis s narrator was a blank slate, African Psycho s protagonist is a quivering mass of lies, neuroses, and relentless internal chatter. Gregoire Nakobomayo, a petty criminal, has decided to kill his girlfriend Germaine. He s planned the crime for some time, but still, the act of murder requires a bit of psychological and logistical preparation. Luckily, he has a mentor to call on, the far more accomplished serial killer Angoualima. The fact that Angoualima is dead doesn t prevent Gregoire from holding lengthy conversations with him. Little by little, Gregoire interweaves Angoualima s life and criminal exploits with his own. Continuing with the plan despite a string of botched attempts, Gregoire s final shot at offing Germaine leads to an abrupt unraveling. Lauded in France for its fresh and witty style, African Psycho s inventive use of language surprises and relieves the reader by injecting humor into this disturbing subject."
