A Novel by Richard Dooling
1994 National Book Award Finalist
New York Times Notable Book of 1994
“A bravura display of satire . . . Dooling evokes the humane checks and balances of a deep world: the logic, you might say, of its magic.”– Richard Eder, L.A. Times.
“The book is absolutely astonishing; I am a Richard Dooling fan for life.”–Phillip M. Margolin, author of Gone, But Not Forgotten and After Dark.
I spent seven months in Sierra Leone in the early 1980s and thoroughly researched everything I’d heard about over there. Unfortunately the books I used are found only in libraries.
