by | Read by Vikas Adam, Neil Shah, Simon Vance

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1971

Listeners will be spellbound as three narrators draw them into a journey of anarchy. Narrators Vikas Adam, Neil Shah, and Simon Vance embody a wide range of characters who are living in or visiting a fictional African country as it disintegrates into violence. The sum of their contributions is to give listeners a growing sense of doom as a tourist couple, played in arch British tones by Simon Vance, drives deeper into a country that is coming apart. Adam's and Shah's performances serve as a kind of Greek chorus, representing people of multiple ethnicities, including Africans and Indians. This is a rich listening experience that fans of world literature will enjoy. The cast works together to create a sense of foreboding reminiscent of Joseph Conrad's work.
