Henderson the Rain King, Paperback


Bellow evokes all the rich colour and exotic customs of a highly imaginary Africa in this comic novel about a middle-aged American millionaire who, seeking a new, more rewarding life, descends upon an African tribe.

Henderson's awesome feats of strength and his unbridled passion for life earns him the admiration of the tribe - but it is his gift for making rain that turns him from mere hero into messiah.

A hilarious, often ribald story, "Henderson the Rain King" is also a profound look at the forces that drive a man through life.
