Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Ron Butler sets a lively pace for this allegorical story of a man who is revisiting the unnamed African country of his childhood after a lifetime abroad. As the main character, also unnamed, sets out to find his brother, he encounters obstacles ranging from vengeful sharpshooters to corrupt bureaucrats, along with a series of storytellers. Through the main story and the storytellers, themes emerge of an individual who is searching for meaning and a nation that is experiencing numerous economic and political struggles. Butler's easy style draws the listener in, and the chapters flow by quickly. For fans of international fiction, this is an interesting story told in an entertaining manner.
