Mind and Landscape Series
The Viceroy of Ouidah
By Bruce Chatwin
Translated by Takashi and Mariko Serizawa

In a dazzling fusion of the light and colour of West Africa that conceals a bottomless darkness, the rise and fall of the Brazilian slave trader Francisco Manoel da Silva and his family unfolds. The novel has been praised as a great literary achievement that reflects author Bruce Chatwin's economical, yet amazingly visual style of writing. The Viceroy of Ouidah is the first Japanese translation of the author's work.

'Dazzles and mystifies, with its lush anger, its
