Henderson the Rain King, Saul Bellow (1915 - 2005) Bellow's glorious, spirited story of an eccentric American millionaire who finds a home of sorts in deepest Africa. Eugene Henderson is a troubled middle-aged man.

In the end he does not find what he apparently needs and goes home.
Aggrieved, worn-out, all but defeated he longs to set things straight. Following the promptings of his unforgettable inner voice- I want, I want, I want -our hero finds himself in Africa. Henderson makes his way into a mythic sun-baked interior, where among exotic tribes he finds fellow seekers, teachers and soulmates.

Pray like anything ve it everything you've got. Come on, Romilayu, pray, I tell yo.
