This novel tells of childhood on a remote island off the west African coast. Superstition dominates in dark times and the hard-pressed islanders sacrifice their possessions to the enraged ocean. What of their lives will they save?

Both lyrical and unsparingly truthful, this novel draws on oral storytelling to illuminate a little-known corner of Africa.

Juan Tom#65533;s #65533;vila Laurel was born in 1966 in Equatorial Guinea. By Night the Mountain Burns is based on his memories of growing up on the remote Annob#65533;n Island. He made headlines in 2011 by embarking on a hunger strike in an anti-government protest.
