Editorial Reviews

Paul Theroux : “Africa seems timeless and immutable, but this is an illusion. It continues to change and decay. Remembering Africa is an account of those changes and of the effect that Africa had on many of its eyewitnesses. . . . Vavra is the treasure seeker and the historian. No one else I know has the access, the inner knowledge, the long history and friends.”
