Ellis Hock has had enough. At age 62 he has spent more than enough time in his once successful but sadly going out of style high end men's clothing store.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
His wife has left him and his adult daughter wants nothing from him but his money.
He is adrift with only his dreams of the happiest time in his life as a young man working in the Peace Corps on the lower river in Africa more than 40 years ago.
Ellis thinks that going back to a happier time in his life will full fill a dream he once thought was lost along with a woman he left behind.
Once in Africa, he feels refreshed & invigorated with a new purpose in life, he will spend his hard earned money on school supplies, canned goods & clothing items for the poor, impoverished peoples of Africa and for the school he built so long ago and hopes is still there.
With no good information or real idea of what is actually happening in Africa and words of caution from the locals about life now on the lower river, he sets off.
When he arrives the place he once knew of course has changed and what happens next is a sad and telling account of one mans delusional venture to try and reclaim the past.
This is a wonderful, very scary and suspenseful tale of the world we live in now, full of fantastic descriptions of a modern Africa the good, the bad and of one lonely sad man.
