The Catastrophist, Paperback / softback Book


Gillespie, an Irishman, goes to the Congo in 1959 in pursuit of his beautiful lover Ines, a passionate Italian journalist.

Unlike her, Gillespie has no interest in the deepening independence crisis, nor in the charismatic leader, Patrice Lumumba.

He has other business: this is his last chance to make love work for him.
