A wonderful book. Full of the sights and sounds of an Africa he clearly loved, he is not blind to its occasional horror; nevertheless he convinces us of its beauties through his careful observation, his ear for its many languages and his eye for telling detail.

Flora, fauna, people, loneliness, culture-shock, compassion and humour all contribute to making this collection haunting and coherent.                              Penelope Shuttle
