The Africans
The Africans
By David Lamb
Random House, 1982, 363 pp

The former Los Angeles Times Africa correspondent here delivers his valedictory on the continent. Colorful, amusing and insightful at its best, the final effect is one of anecdotal overload: as each exotic tale follows hard upon the last, the reader comes away with a single strong impression-Africa is a very strange place.
