"Told through two haunting interwoven diaries, Mia Couto's Confession of the Lioness reveals the enigmatic world of Kulumani, an isolated village in Mozambique whose traditions and beliefs are threatened when ghostlike lionesses begin hunting the local women. The young Mariamar, whose sister was recently killed in an attack, has been imprisoned by her father in his home. Meanwhile, a marksman, the outsider Archangel Bullseye, has arrived to track the deadly lionessess, but as he pursues them in the wilderness, the hunt proves deadlier than imagined. As the predators continue to close in, the village confronts the forces of modernity, it becomes clear that the lionesses may not be animals at all, but the spitirts conjured by the village women's ancient witchcraft. Both a riveting mystery and a poignant examination of women's oppression, this darkly poetic novel combines reality, superstition, and magical realism to startling effect."--back cover
