Reviews

This 1981 novel was Boyle's first and he started off with a bang. Boyle said that the purpose of this title was "to reinterpret the notion of the historical novel from the point of view of a 20th-century wiseguy." With his signature bawdy humor, Boyle presents 18th-century adventurers Ned Rise and Mungo Park, who join forces to make their way to the source of Africa's Niger River. This 25th-anniversary edition sports a new intro by James R. Kincaid. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
