Reviews

"Reads like an amalgam of Evelyn Waugh and Joseph Conrad. The truth is stranger than any fiction, and the pleasure of this book lies in its unbelievable veracity."--The New York Times Book Review"Brisk [and] deliciously entertaining. . . . Foden plays up the peculiar details and eccentric personalities of his story."--Chicago Tribune"Satisfying. . . . Fast-paced. . . . Filled with fascinating characters." --The Seattle Times"[An] enjoyable book. . . . The real story is . . . more fascinating than the movie [The African Queen]."--The Washington Post"Filled with oddball characters and events that . . . just could not be made up. . . . An amazing tale." --Santa Fe New Mexican
