The Interview of Morgyane Kiinzah

Today we make a Zoom on Morgyane Kiinzah, author of Engrenages (Gears), published by Lysons since February 15, 2017.

She lent herself to the game of 7 questions we asked her so that you can know her more!

1 / How did you get the idea to write Gears and why?

Gears is the fruit of a promise made, it is the respect of a given word. I have traveled a lot and I have also had several meetings but there are some meetings that are jostling your whole existence and Gears was born in this way.

God does not do anything at random as it is said: he has therefore put on my way beautiful people at the right time, and since: Engrenages is slowly but surely following his destiny.

2 / What is true and what is romanticized in Gears?

Gears is a chain of events, a link that links the heroine to all the other girls in the novel and they can not be dissociated.
Everything is true, every event related is real to one difference: I deliberately chose to write the end as I wrote it in order to draw the alarm bell on these anonymous dramas. Domestic violence is becoming more frequent; they continue to grow with their share of tragedies. Clandestine immigration: we talk about it all the time, but we never speak, if not very rarely, of its undercurrents, its tragedies that live foreign people in an irregular situation.

3 / To write to you, it is …

to exist, to hope is to heal evils, to live.

4 / What do you have in common with the heroine of your novel, Kafue?

(Laughs …)

We may think that we are naive, but we have just a heart and soul of a child. We know how to see the good side in every being that destiny puts on our way.
We are persistent and determined and can rise when we fall. We do not make failure a weakness but a weapon that forges us and rebuilds us.

5 / If you could stop one or more gears other than those described in your novel, what would they be?

I would like to answer this question but it would announce immediately and in a rather hasty way the colors of my next novel.
Will we discuss it again? Promised!
(Laughs …)

6 / You have made a career in music, if you were to attribute a musical genre to Gears, what would it be and why?

I wrote a song that bears the name of the heroine of Gears: “Kafue.”
Everything started from there, in reality. Before writing Engrenages, I thought of denouncing these plagues in song. And it is rather soft and calm, transposed in a contemporary way, as I like. Gears would thus be in the image of ” Timbuktu Fasso ” of Fatoumata Diawara.

7 / In life, what are the three things that matter most to you?

I give a great respect and a place of choice to the Divine Creator.
It is quite personal, but often incomprehensible to some of my relationship with this Supreme Goodness. But for me and my family members: she does great things.
If I must therefore cite three “things” which are dear to my heart, I will say:
  • God,
  • The family,
  • The friends.
Thank you all.
Thank you for your support.

[Zoom] on the novel

Zoom on the novel

Even the most reluctant to read one day had a novel in his hands. Whether it is because of a reading imposed by the school or any other occasion. Indeed, the novel is the most widely read genre in France. But, what exactly is a novel?

It is a literary genre, characterized by a fictional narrative, and which has multiple subgenres (fantasy, detective, science fiction …).

Origins of the novel

The term “novel” (Latin vulgar) means a Romanic translation of a text written in Latin. French literature born of the Strasbourg Oath, first text written in “novel”. This pact (of legal value) between the grandsons of Charlemagne was written in 842. Before that date, all the texts were written in Latin.

In the Middle Ages, in the twelfth century, the novel was written in verse. He thus evokes, through stories fabulous and close to the epic, the questions that concern most people at the time. In the 13th century, the worms became proses in the adventures of Lancelot du Lac. From this point on, the novel genre really develops.

The novel knows its hours of glory since the nineteenth century, whether historical, adventure, science fiction …

“Reading a novel throws light on life.” (Louis Aragon)

Gears, by Morgyane Kiinzah [Beninese Literature]

The story of Kafue

Gears tells the story of Kafue. Do we really have to take our destiny into our hands, when this one seems to have escaped us? Are there only happy chances? How can we keep the reason when love knocks at the door of our hearts? How do we manage to lower our guard, to forget so quickly our convictions, our feline instinct and the strength that characterize us, when we fall in love?

Is Africa only that rickety child, described by many, that only the nourishing hand of Europe can cure?

All the answers to these many questions in Gears: a black novel inspired by real facts that retraces the journey of an African youth, very fascinated by the lights of Europe. In her quest for romance, Kafue, a beautiful young Beninese full of dreams and elves sees her life rocking after a meeting she believed idyllic.

She is very concerned about the future of her loved ones and her colleagues living in Africa, partly because of the tragedies linked to immigration. The author aspires to raise awareness of the risks and dangers faced by those who are enrolled in unscrupulous systems. She acknowledges her commitment by writing her first book: Gears.

An emotional shock book written like a cry of alarm, as a deep desire to protect humanity from the dreams that it is better sometimes to abort if these imply to leave there its freedom, even its life.
