Mortals, Norman Rush (2003)

27607Rush knows Botswana very well it is easy to see. He also knows the emotional world of long term marriage partners. And he knows the outlines of a low key LeCarre style plot setting a minor CIA officer among a shifting alliance of political and religious rebels in Southern Africa around the time of Mandela release. Long book 700 pages.. not a page turner. Heavyweight. This book will be read for a long time.
