Daring to Survive by Francisco Moises has Africa at the heart of its text.
This is not just a description of the end of colonialism in Mozambique, but a richly flavoured tour of exotic locations.
The evocative narrative with its musical, native meter will transport the reader into the very heartland of Africa seen as it is through the eyes of someone who lived there, through the clash of cultures between native life and the imposed regime of the Portuguese, and the following chaos that ensued in some locations after independence.
This account is both deeply personal and historic, told with a simple gravitas and at times, a raw edge that brings to life the native existence.
Daring to Survive is a fascinating and compelling read.
