Central Africa

Central Africa

If your travels lead you to the heart of Africa, to countries like Angola, Malawi, Cameroon, Burundi and the Congo, there's much to read beyond Conrad's classic Heart of Darkness, although that's still a good choice! We also feature a nice selection of nature guides, some provocative histories, intimate travelogues and Barbara Kingsolver's expansive novel The Poisonwood Bible.
