Summary: The Coupdescribes violent events in the imaginary African nation of Kush, a large, landlocked, drought-ridden, sub-Saharan country led by Colonel Hakim Félix Ellelloû. (''A leader,'' writes Colonel Ellelloû, ''is one who, out of madness or goodness, takes upon himself the woe of a people. There are few men so foolish.'') Colonel Ellelloû has four wives, a silver Mercedes, and a fanatic aversion-cultural, ideological, and personal-to the United States.
But the U.S. keeps creeping into Kush, and the repercussions of this incursion constitute the events of the novel. Colonel Ellelloû tells his own story-always elegantly, and often in the third person-from an undisclosed location in the South of France.
