In the Footsteps of Mr Kurtz: Living on the Brink of Disaster in the Congo (Text Only)
by Michela Wrong
- @michael_nielsen Yes; great. On Congo, both "In the Footsteps of Mr Kurtz" & "Dancing in the Glory of Monsters" are exceptional.
A story of grim comedy amid the apocalypse and a celebration of the sheer indestructibility of the human spirit in a nation run riot: Michela Wrong’s vision of Congo/Zaire during the Mobutu years is incisive, ironic and revelatory.
