In 1995 Toby Green became friends with El Hadji, a Senegalese photographer who swore that, in the West African hinterland, there were mystics who possessed the secrets of how to become invisible and invulnerable. Four years later, he returns to meet up with his old friend, and test the strengths of these surreal claims for himself. 'By turns mysterious, hilarious, beautiful and troubling, this book brings to light the disturbing links between the seeds of racism and the nature of contemporary culture. An excellent and thought-provoking book.' Global Adventure 'Green is a brave and intrepid traveller ... West Africa tests his resolve to the limit, presenting some of the toughest travelling conditions to be found anywhere in the world.' Sunday Times
