Abstract:
This thesis examines fictional representations of the figure of the black African albino in selected novels by French writers Didier Destremau and Patrick Grainville, and Guinean writer Williams Sassine. Exploring how and why French and African Francophone novelists position black African albinos as protagonists in their writing, I consider the implications of their treatment of this figure in relation to colonial and postcolonial concepts of African identity.
