The Leopard Man

A novel from Tanzania

The novel describes, once again, a white European's difficult meeting with black Africa.
After having experienced things in Tanzania which I found were really difficult to understand, I felt the need of summing up my African experience. "The Leopard Man" summarises my work with material from Tanzania from the beginning of the 90s when I worked together with my family for two years for the Norwegian Peace Corps.
"The Leopard Man" is a result of practical as well as theoretical studies of Iraqw culture, and contains Iraqw myths and extracts from prayers and religious ceremonies.
