by Mercédès Fouda

Book Preview


“A la tête du client is a vitriolic indictment of the unsettling myths and stereotypes surrounding the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Cameroon. It problematizes and lampoons the unethical practices of medical personnel that have made this disease an intractable ailment in Cameroon and beyond. The English translation of A la tête du client titled Fly over the Crooks’ Crooked Nest denounces and scourges the predatory behaviour of the wicked who take advantage of the weakest in a context of HIV/AIDs. When two rascals decide to open their own laboratory for medical analysis, without any skills or equipment, the least harmful results amount to ‘Obama... blood type O, Axelrod...blood type A...’”

Dr. Peter Wuteh Vakunta, University of Indianapolis, United States of America
