Pandora in the Congo

by Albert Sanchez Pinol

More twists than a tornado! The language weaves you into an African adventure of love, sex and war ... with a little fantasy twirled in for good measure. The passions run high and yet the end leaves you questioning whether you are happy or sad.


'Marcus,' he said.
'Amgam,' she repeated.
'Amgam?' said Marcus. 'Amgam.'
So, the most likely conclusion is that Amgaam was nothing moe than a Tecton word for 'light' or 'fire' or both things at once. But Marcus began to call her Amgam. And the name stuck.
