Desert Divers, Paperback



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.
