paperback    ISBN 13: 9780140292626 | ISBN 10: 0140292624

The Shadow of The Sun has been hailed as the greatest modern work on Africa and as a dazzling literary masterpiece.

"One of the finest books I have ever read about Africa...Kapuscinskihas been visiting Africa as a journalist since 1957... he has avoided "official routes, important personages and high-lever politics" is here, in the margins, that Kapuscinski has achieved something no other commentator I know of has done."
(Justin Cartwright, Daily Mail)
"Vintage Kapuscinski... a spectacular cast of leaders-in-waiting, roadblock bullies, gunmen, witches, peasants, villains and heroes of almost every persuasion, in Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia... His is the first wide-ranging, elegant, aristocratic intelligence since Conrad's to bear on Africa in all its perplexity."
(Jeremy Harding, Evening Standard)
