Reading List

The Mission Song is the second of le Carre's African novels, the first being The Constant Gardener. In this one, the action takes place entirely in England and on an unnamed island off Denmark, but the Congo is the nexus of everything that happens. No one writes better about the threats from outside--and inside!--to the unholy mess that is Africa today. Actually, few write better, period.
