Stringer: A Reporter's Journey in the Congo

by Anjan Sundaram - £8.99  Atlantic Books (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781782392491 | ISBN 10: 1782392491

Written with startling beauty and acuity, Stringer is an account of a year and a half that Anjan Sundaram spent in the Congo working on the bottom rung of the Associated Press.
 
It was an intense period that would take him deep into the shadowy city of Kinshasa, to the dense rainforests that still evoke Conrad's vision, and to the heart of Africa's great war, culminating in the historic and violent multiparty elections of 2006. Along the way he would go on a joyride with Kinshasa's feral children, fend off its women desperate for an escape route, and travel with an Indian businessman hunting for his fortune.
