The Shadow of the Sun

The Shadow of the Sun - Ryszard Kapuściński, Klara Glowczewska "Shadow of the Sun" is an excellent account of life in Africa. Although I have not been, Kapuscinski's detail and storytelling paints a picture of the massive continent not unlike that of National Geographic's photos. The last paragraph of the book is one of the best writing I have every read. Extremely entertaining and informative-- just a tad long in the tooth.
