Summary
Bruno Salvador, known to friends and enemies alike as Salvo, is the ever-innocent twenty-nine-year-old orphaned love child of a Catholic Irish missionary and a Congolese woman. Salvo is inspired by his mentor, Brother Michael, to train as a professional interpreter in the minority African languages. Soon a rising star in his profession, he is courted by London corporations, hospitals, law firms, the immigration services, and the mushrooming overworld of British intelligence. He is also courted, and won, by Penelope, a white upper-class star reporter. This book is by turns thriller, love story, and comic allegory of our times, recounting Salvo's naive journey out of the dark of Western hypocrisy and into the heart of lightness
