Broken Glass by Alain Mabanckou

"Broken Glass" is a satirical novel that takes place in a seedy bar in the Congo. The narrator, a disgraced schoolteacher known as Broken Glass, has been commissioned by the bar's owner to write about the bar and its regulars. The story is a chaotic, humorous, and poignant exploration of the lives of these characters, their histories, and their relationships, all told in a single, run-on sentence without any full stops.
