Desert Divers

Sven Lindqvist, "Desert Divers"
English | 2002 | ISBN: 1862075077 | 144 pages | EPUB | 4.3 MB

This book follows the author on a personal journey into the Sahara and examination into the racist assumptions of those writers who have gone before him. Taking as a metaphor the divers who cleaned out desert wells, Lindqvist drags to the surface the story of colonial slaughter and sexual exploitation which contaminate his boyhood idols.
