This chapter reads Touré’s fiction against his non-fiction in order to highlight a conceptual tension between artistic experimentation and monocultural consumption. This chapter posits that a similar tension exists between the desire to share in cultural products that help construct a unified identity and the necessity to diversity those forms. Ultimately, Touré satirizes the danger inherent in monocultural productions.
