Meet Me in Mozambique spans three continents and a lifetime of travel and writing. Markham tells stories that meander in comic, self-deprecating fashion between so many people and places to create an audacious world of their own. In his writing, he could be compared with V. S. Naipaul for his flinty intelligence and world citizen outlook- with Andrea Levy for his understanding of the immigrant experience- with Derek Walcott for his depictions of Caribbean life- or with David Dabydeen for his bold literary experimentation. But his is a unique voice—volatile, unsentimental, and always elegant. will introduce Markhams wise storytelling voice to many new readers. He is always entertaining quick jokes and graceful word-plays enhance his tough-minded and astute interpretations.
