Description

'Dodging the vested interests of the Ngwenya clan, his wayward wife Magdan and the colonial dinosaur Jumbo Munroe, the narrator embarks on a quasi-biblical quest that owes more to Waugh and Ballard than Rider Haggard, a tale that hits the ground running and continues at a vigorous pace. This is one of the shrewdest and most diverting novels about Africa one could hope to read.' DAILY TELEGRAPH The Narrator of this immaculately written book is a journalist and film-maker investigating the disappearance of his father in Africa in 1959 while on a trip for National Geographic in the company of the lovestruck Mrs de Luth. Certain of the locals belief he is still alive somewhere in the mountainous interior, having been adopted by the Ofreo tribe, a strange and venerable caste of master-craftsmen
