The Parachute Drop

Norbert Zongo was Burkina Faso's most respected journalist before his politically motivated murder in 1998. This novel is an eerily prophetic narra- tive, foretelling many of the events that preceeded his death. His novel portrays a fictional West African nation named Watinbow led by President Gouama, a man of demonic energy and greed. Toppled in a coup d'etat, he must now confront the people of Watinbow, whom he has betrayed. This rare insight into the psychology of a corrupt African leader will help readers understand the nightmare of contemporary Africa.
