An incredible book, hard work at times but only because of the themes it covers and the shocking events the narrator witnesses. Tremendous descriptions of a Westerner trying to find a place in Africa and a vivid attempt to portray the innermost workings of a woman who has never truly understood herself.
This book is so evocative that I was greedy for more when I finished, I may have to go to Liberia! Or failing that, order another Russell Banks book.
