Book by Pye-Smith, Charlie
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In 1975 Pye-Smith made a low-budget tour of Egypt, the Sudan, and Ethiopia: he returned in 1984 to write his impressions of this stress-torn region. He gives us a book that is neither political reportage nor the predictable tourist account, but rather one that is highly personal, earthy, sometimes very amusing (e.g., when he writes of bureaucrats and "Lucky Cow" brand corned beef), and sometimes troubling (e.g., as when he writes of the refugees in Khartoum). Above all the book is finely crafted in the best tradition of British travel writing. It belongs in most travel collections. Harold M. Otness, Southern Oregon State Coll. Lib., Ashland
