Adopted by an American Homosexual in the Belgian Congo
Adopted by an American Homosexual in the Belgian Congo (English Edition),
by Albert Russo.
This is the second volume of the African Quatuor of Albert Russo’s award-winning novels on the Belgian Congo and Rwanda-Urundi.
“This is a must-read text book, I exclaimed after reading the first pages of this fascinating novel. And the more I read, the more I was convinced, as a former Professor in several universities and a former Director of the Israeli School of Diplomats, that this great novel should be in the hands of students of History, of Africa, of Developing Countries and of Diplomacy. Any student interested in the history of Africa at the turn of this continent from colonial times to freedom and independence, would greatly benefit from reading this book. This intense, passionate novel, teaches us so much about Congo-Léopoldville, the present Congo-Kinshasa, also known as Zaire.” – Moshe Liba, Ambassador to 8 African countries and South America, Professor, artist, essayist and poet
