A young Flemish country kid saw the American and Canadian soldiers chasing the Germans from his village. Then he became successively: a seminarist, a soldier, a travel agent, a woodcutter in Nigeria and Ivory Coast where he met love; a student at the American University in Washington, a Hippy in San Francisco. He also was a student rebel in the Sorbonne and a teacher in Communist Cuba in 1968, from where he was kicked out but got married again for a visa; a traveler from El Paso to Chile, an agrarian reform agent for Allende; a go-between for the Latin revolutionary movements. Then he belonged to the fraternity of Hunters of the once fierce Malinké tribe in Mali. Later on, he became a hedonist without knowing the word; a livestock census project manager in Chad, running for three years after cows and camels all over the Sahel. You'll also find matters of faith and science; libertinage and religion; Plato, Saint Paul and Epicure; lesbians and imposed celibacy, circumcision and excision; the gregarious bee, the masturbating fish, the epicurean pig and the monogamous elephant...All this is one man and one life, and this book is mainly about you.
