I read the piece, and it was okay, but the title of the piece is annoying, as is the cliched "Africa changed me" (living in a different culture will do that to you, as will living through your twenties), and I can't help but feel that Stephanie Nolen is Edward Greenspon's prize pet, and is carefully being nurtured by her verbose, self-important benefactor for greater things.

Paul Theroux's excellent book Dark Star also scores avoids the Granta cliches and is highly recommended by yours truly as is everything else Theroux has written.
