I've just finished reading an extraordinary book, The Patriots, which is an autobiographical novel by the Angolan author, Sousa Jamba. It's depiction of war in general and the Angolan civil war in particular is one of the most insightful I've ever seen. Unfortunately the book, which was published by Viking/Penguin Books in 1990 is out of print. Does anyone know of anything that can be done to resuscitate exceptional books like this, which may have been published a decade before its true audience developed?
