An old photograph prompts a young man whose father has just died to delve into a story that has been buried for decades. Although it has only an external connection with his family history, the story proves to be future salvation. Villa Combray is a family romance that is dominated by love and death, and where a veil of concealment lies over everything. In a story that combines intrigue and exotic adventure with existential discovery, the hero tries to bring the inner truth of things to the surface. A journey deep into Africa, into the jungle of Cameroon, narrated in realistic mode, suddenly enters into an almost magical world that calls to mind Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. Alexis Stamatis has fashioned a hero who talks to himself in revealing fashion as a series of events that the characters must face mark a gradual progress towards self-knowledge.
