Good morning, chaps. On this grey and dull morning, inject a bit of the swampiness and hotness of Africa into your lives - read my review of Paul Theroux's The Lower River, which is set (mostly) in Africa, on The Daily Telegraph. The picture is of Rupert Graves and Kristin Scott Thomas, who star in the film adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's A Handful of Dust - which is one of the literary grandparents of this novel; as is Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness.
