    1. Ryszard Kapuscinski sits under the branchy shade of a solitary acacia and stares at the incommensurable moonlike landscape unfolding in front of him Plains covered with parched, thorny shrubs and vast extensions of sandy ground seem ablaze in a shimmering haze that refracts on the journalist s eyes forcing him to squint Water and shade, such fluid, inconstant things, and the two most valuable treasures in Africa , this half historian, half journalist recalls while revisiting the thirty years he [...]

    2. The population of Africa was a gigantic, matted, crisscrossing web, spanning the entire continent and in constant motion, endlessly undulating, bunching up in one place and spreading out in another, a rich fabric, a colourful arras Ryszard Kapuscinski, The Shadow of the SunA man I d unfortunately never heard of wrote one of the most engaging historical reflections I ve ve ever read Ryszard Kapuscinski reported on African events for a Polish newspaper for over 40 years He was definitely in Africa [...]

    3. This is insightful prose written by a Polish journalist who spent years traveling around Africa beginning in the 1950s It is a collection of essays that follow Kapuscinski s time spent in Africa during coups, wars, racial tensions, hunger, starvation, sickness, and Though I didn t love the parts of the book that seemed highly dramatized, what I really liked about this is that Kapuscinski gets into the experience, living it and detailing it He s not a removed journalist In fact, this book reads [...]

    5. changed my experience with this book For much of the time I was reading it, I was mesmerized by the writing, flabbergasted by some of the information about Africa, and convinced I was encountering the continent in a nuanced and subtle and authentic manner I planned to give a copy to my husband for his birthday and to recommend it to my book group Curious about what other readers thought, I looked at some of the almost 500 reviews of it on , and it was there that I came across one reader s refere [...]

    7. A book like this would normally I would have imagined taken me very little time to read because I would devour it in a binge of gulpings and swallowings but it took me a good deal longer In part, for the simple reason that I was taken up with other things and couldn t find the freedom to absorb myself in his world as I would have liked but also for the equally simple but at the same time profound reason that there was just too much to take in.I listed it as epistolary and though it is not offici [...]

    9. Kapu ci ski was a Polish journalist who died in 2007, and who spent time in Africa between the late 1950ies and the 1990ies Africa was not his only beat, but when he spent time there he spent time with the people and shared their lives when he could He was the first Polish foreign correspondent to cover Africa and he was always seriously underfunded compared with those representing the big European and American publications and agencies What he lacked in funds he made up in ingenuity and a willi [...]

    12. Kapu ci ski first went to Africa in 1957 and, over the next forty years, returned whenever he could He says I travelled extensively, avoiding official routes, palaces, important personages, and high level politics Instead, I opted to hitch rides on passing trucks, wander with nomads through the desert, be the guest of peasants of the tropical savannah Their life is endless toil, a torment they endure with astonishing patience and good humor This is therefore not a book about Africa, but rather a [...]

    13. Shifting seamlessly from vignettes of daily life to grand excursions into Africa s turbulent political past, Kapuscinski zig zags across vast expanses of scorching desert and lush greenery in this masterful piece of journalistic travel writing He describes people, politics and landscape with equal ease The lioness stalking in the tall grasses is as riveting as the utterly fascinating character study of Idi Amin.The first chapter was studded with generalisations about Africa and Africans that mad [...]

    14. Last fall I read Travels with Herodotus by Ryszard Kapuscinski, the Polish journalist It was his final book he died in January, 2007 and I enjoyed it very much, having recently read Herodotus Histories upon which he draws extensively So it was with great anticipation that I looked forward to reading earlier works by Ryszard Kapuscinski As an introduction to the mosaic of life that is known as Africa The Shadow of the Sun did not disappoint The book consists of loosely connected essays on the tra [...]

    15. Questo non un libro sull Africa, ma su alcune persone che vi abitano, sui miei incontri con loro, sul tempo trascorso insieme un continente troppo grande per poterlo descrivere un vero e proprio oceano, un pianeta a parte, un cosmo eterogeneo e ricchissimo In realt , a parte la sua denominazione geografica, l Africa non esiste L Africa tutta in movimento, in cammino, dispersa gli uni scappano dalla guerra, altri dalla siccit , altri ancora dalla carestia Scappano, vagano, si perdono Dalla nascit [...]

I diari africani del grande Kapu ci ski, come sempre in grado di calarsi in qualsiasi situazione e andare al fondo delle persone e dei fatti con estrema umilt.Non giudica mai, non c mai superiorit nelle sue descrizioni, ma un continuo chiedersi la ragione delle cose, quella vera, e una naturale e incredibile capacit di guardare dietro le apparenze e trovare l origine delle colpe.Nonostante sia datato, credo che Ebano sia tutt oggi uno dei migliori libri per conoscere le radici del disastro Afric [...]

    17. La gente non muore di fame perch il mondo non ha abbastanza cibo di cibo ce n in abbondanza, quanto se ne vuole Ma tra chi ha fame e i magazzini stracolmi si erge un ostacolo insormontabile il gioco politico In Africa chi ha le armi ha il cibo, chi ha il cibo ha il potere Questo un mondo di gente che non discetta sulla trascendenza e l essenza dell anima,sul senso della vita e sulla natura dell esistenza Siamo in un mondo dove l uomo striscia nel fango alla ricerca di un chicco di grano per sopp [...]

    18. Ryszard Kapuscinski was the foreign correspondent par excellence, someone who could simultaneously travel rough, report the story, appreciate and approach the local people on their own terms, and weave his experiences into a narrative of uncommon breadth and intelligence And it s even impressive when you realize he s covering Africa for the presumably shoestring Polish communist press Books like these up the ante for book length journalism, and show what an absolute shit job the puppets ensconc [...]

    19. The Shadow of the Sun , a set of stories by Ryszard Kapuscinski, a Polish journalist who travelled and lived in Africa numerous times between the 50s and the 90s, has definitely taught me humbleness and almost painfully exposed my ignorance of Africa After finishing the book I read that Kapuscinski had lived through 27 coups and revolutions, had been jailed 40 times and had survived 4 death sentences, however in this book you will not find a single hint of pride or a boasting word about his endu [...]

    21. This book takes you on an a whirlwind tour of Africa over the span of many years, many countries, and many different types of situations The essays span the continent and quickly zoom the reader in and then back out of small incidents, large coups, nomadic wanderings, war lords, and everything and everyone in between I ve never been able to get my mind around Africa Its complexity both geographically and politically make it difficult to understand and internalize In one respect the book doesn t [...]

    22. Africa and Kapuscinski Kapuscinski s Africa.Burning hot continent, swept by waves of revolution, war, man slaughter but also of unbearable beauty A place of utmost complex diversity there s no generalization can capture it Honestly, Africa had been outside my radar before reading this But the gift and curse of Kapuscinski s writing is that it drew me in, dragged me to the unknown and made me pause to think My world is getting larger, vaster and richer I am a bit relieved that he had written only [...]

    24. A fantastic introduction to this mysterious continent The experiences of over 40 years travelling in and reporting from Africa are beautifully condensed in this small book Here is a long quote The European and the African have an entirely different concept of time In the European worldview, time exists outside man, exists objectively, and has measurable and linear characteristics According to Newton, time is absolute Absolute, true, mathematical time of itself and from its own nature, it flows e [...]

    25. Our world, seemingly global, is in reality a planet of thousands of the most varied and never intersecting provinces A trip around the world is a journey from backwater to backwater, each of which considers itself, in its isolation, a shining star For most people, the real world ends on the threshold of their house, at the edge of their village, or, at the very most, on the border of their valley That, which is beyond is unreal, unimportant, and even useless, whereas that which we have at our fi [...]
