By

Rating
Musician Bob Geldof first visited Africa in 1984. The following year, Live Aid inspired a generation to raise millions for the starving in Africa. More than 20 years on, passion undiminished, Geldof returns to what he calls the Luminous Continent. This is his personal diary. Unflinchingly honest, and stunningly illustrated with his own photographs, "Geldof in Africa" paints a unique picture of this extraordinary and beautiful land.

Reviews

"'An entrancing book - reflective, insightful and angry where appropriate'" * Time Out * "'It's shocking. I didn't expect, or want, to have to say this - but it's shocking because it's brilliant. Often spluttering with fury. And incredulous horror. But just as often, Bob is very, very funny.'" * Evening Standard * "'Extremely well written and often remarkable'" * Sunday Times * "'Geldof is a superb guide to this most generalised about, and least understood continent, negotiating a fine balance between well-informed passion and instinctively sardonic humour. Excellent'" * Guardian * "'Brilliant. He has managed to reach into the soul of the Luminous Continent, and it has taken possession of him'" * Evening Standard *
