The Most Secret Memory of Men by Mohamed Mbougar Sarr

Staff Pick

For anyone who reads it, The Labyrinth of Inhumanity becomes an obsession. Its mythical author, T.C. Elimane, vanished decades ago in a cloud of very French scandal, and Mbougar Sarr's audacious novel sets his young fanboy narrator after him on a winding odyssey across continents.  Like the mysterious book at its center, Most Secret Memory, which won the thirtysomething Senegalese author the 2021 Goncourt Prize, is a fierce, lyrical, and powerful monument to the redemptive power of literature at its very finest, and a novel one will never forget, let this one work its magic.
