Africa, Africa!
     

Africa, Africa!

by Frederic Hunter
 

Africa, Africa! is a tour de force by a distinguished writer. It is powerful and sometimes chilling in its emotional landscapes, accurately conveying the disorientation and dislocation of Africa during the consolidation of local rule. Yet the book is also filled with one-of-a-kind characters and jaw-dropping events thinly disguised as fiction.

Meet the Author

Fred Hunter came of age in Africa. He served first as a US Information Officer in the Congo, opening an American Cultural Center in the Equateur, its remotest region, then fleeing when rebellion engulfed the country. Later he became The Christian Science Monitor’s Africa Correspondent, based in Nairobi and covering sub-Saharan Africa.


Leaving journalism, Fred had a 25-year career as a screenwriter. For PBS he adapted his The Hemingway Play as well as Ring Lardner’s The Golden Honeymoon and for that network wrote Lincoln and the War Within about the Fort Sumter crisis.


That project led to his recent novel ABE AND MOLLY: The Lincoln Courtship, AbeandMolly.com. Fred blogs at TravelsinAfrica.com and LincolnLink.com.
