The Masque of Africa Reviews
"A sharply written and engrossing exploration of the effects of religious and spiritual belief on societies. Effective both as a vivid piece of travel writing and for its glimpses of belief in Africa." - Library Journal
"Ever fair-minded, soberly reflective, and conciliatory, Naipaul offers his sage observations in the hope that by learning more, we accept greater." - Publishers Weekly
"A work more narrative than reflective, but Naipaul's prose remains smooth, subtle, often silvery." - Kirkus
