"Beyond the shantytown are the houses of the white managers of the sawmill, with armed security guards, air conditioning and all the rest. Through the windows you catch a glimpse of flickering plasma screens and elephant tusks. Horns and pelts of the most exotic African animals. African girlfriends who sit on couches sipping beer."

Luis Devin, The Forest Has You
