Another Theroux-ly good book
Politically incorrect but very fair, as usual for Theroux. People are what this book is all about, and Theroux is thrilled to bits to be around them, any of them, so he can poke, prod, discuss, listen, love them all, begrudgingly sometimes. Another very fun adventure tale for deep thinkers, another witty but serious expose (can't put the accent on the final E of EXPOSE on my computer) of what makes Africa tick and not tick, and of those non-Africans who profess to be trying to help.
