The Children of Segu

Maryse Conde, Author, Linda Coverdale, Translator Ballantine Books $9.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-345-36634-4
This sequel to Segu concerns the 19th-century tribal wars, Islamic conquest and French occupation of the African kingdom, focusing on characters with kinship bonds to the Traore family. ``Male characters supply the dominant points of views; women are seen as objects. Exhaustive scholarship . . . suffocates the narrative,'' PW complained. (Nov.)
