Interior, Paperback / softback Book

Interior Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


In Justin Cartwright's fourth, immaculately written novel, a journalist and filmmaker tells the story of his attempt to unravel the mystery of his father's ill-fated expedition to Africa in 1959. '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 . . . 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
