Matata Books - Tsavo - The Money-Eaters

The Money-Eaters

Lando's innovative design for the TSAVO Man-Eaters Motel, inspired by John H. Patterson's 1907 novel "The Man Eaters of Tsavo", was abandoned in mid-construction in the 1970s. 'Ghost Directors' had plundered the funds.
Braz adds a uniquely Goan point of view to a story that is like my own. He was born in Kenya, so was I. He went to school there but went to Goa for some of his schooling. I went to England for a fair chunk of mine. There are many similarities. However, I was born into a privileged, white society that imposed a distinct racial segregation in Kenya (and other parts of the Empire/Commonwealth). Braz provides another perspective into that racially divided society. The books are very well worth reading. I recommend them to you all.
