    " "All news out of Africa is bad." So begins Paul Theroux's account of his journey from Cairo to Cape Town, seen always through the keen eyes of a world traveler who enables us to see the beauty, richness and heartbreaking brutality of the "dark" continent. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Africa and its place in the world. "

    " I've read and re-read this book. For whatever reason Theroux seems to capture Africa and its people. There's genuine affection for the continent despite the problems & issues he is more than willing to raise. He's written some excellent travel books but this is his best "
