MAHOGANY by Alfrede egre


Email this review


A first novel by a young Italian, backgrounded in his own experience on the Cold Coast of West Africa, and presenting, with little illusion, the life of the white man in that jungle territory where bodies and feelings deteriorate, where disease and native resentment are high, where the years pass with carg of mahogany and attacks of malaria, he only incidents. The setting in a plantation; the story involves the partners, hating each other, dreaming of the future, and the disastrous trip to town which stripped Silva of everything. Limited appeal for able handling of a gri? subject.
