From the book cover:

Forthright, incisive, controversial, Winter in July shows one of our most brilliant writers grappling with the most bitterly explosive issue of our age - Africa. Written with all the angry compassion of first-hand knowledge, these stores reveal Africa in the raw - an Africa unknown to the vast majority of Europeans. Here is a vivid, strong, unforgettable evocation of its sounds and smells, its stark power and savage grandeur, its agony and ultimate tragedy.
