Bobby’s and Linda’s road trip through interregnum Africa builds from flip indifference to cruel struggle with the harsh disorder. This 1971 Booker winner dazzles with description of lakes, rivers, forests, without loosing sight of the story about how humans, from all classes and nations, inhabit these lands. The other pieces in the volume are characters in formation.

The writing is spare, the sense of alienation intense - how real! What a joy to read - even as the stories are very sad
