The Fufubar Guide to Books about Africa

Here are reviews of a variety of books about Africa. I hope you find some that lead you to read and enjoy the books. In most cases, I start the review with one or two quotes from the book, where the first is meant to say something interesting about life in Africa, and the second is meant to say something funny or odd.
