About this book
A century after Conrad's "Heart Of Darkness", Michela Wrong visits the Congo during the turbulent reign of Mobuto Sese Seko. A story of dark comedy and social turmoil, which is a testament to the strength of the human spirit in a country gone mad. 16pp b/w illus.
A story of grim comedy amid the apocalypse and a celebration of the sheer indestructibility of the human spirit in a nation run riot: Michela Wrong's vision of Congo/Zaire during the Mobutu years is incisive, ironic and revelatory.
