This taut and gritty African odyssey takes us from jungle natives to corrupt poachers and land-rapers, sometimes in a single breath. With dialects and personalities expertly crafted by Tim Pigott-Smith, ELEPHANT SONG carries the listener effortlessly through romance, intrigue, and environmental outrage. Clear-cut characters with even clearer agendas and motivations play a deadly game in Zimbabwe's Chiwewe National Park, and we learn much about the fate of modern Africa as a result. Bring a mosquito net, for the humidity and teeming life of the jungle seem completely present in this densely populated work. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
