Reading “Impressions of Africa” This book is unillustrated, although Roussel produced a theatrical version of it, and also of the book Locus Solus.   Regardless, Impressions of Africa is a strange but fun book. I found it hard to believe that the author was a contemporary of Proust. Impressions of Africa is definitely worth a look if you can hold on long enough for things to make sense, or are flexible enough not to demand that sense has to be made.
