Announcing The Release Of Richard Grant’s Newest Book: “Crazy River”
“As he did in God’s Middle Finger, Grant takes us into a world where few willingly venture. His feverish journey from Zanzibar, down an uncharted river and into the broken heart of 21st century Africa is by turns funny, poignant, frightening and deeply disturbing. The future Grant shows us with such lucidity and compassion is one his predecessors, Stanley, Livingstone and Burton could never have envisioned.”
–John Vaillant, author of The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival
