Inhaltsangabe: Assigned to write an exposé on Richmond Hew, the conservation world’s most elusive and corrupt humanitarian worker, an intrepid journalist finds himself on a plane to the Congo―a country he thinks he understands. But when he meets Sola, a woman searching for a rootless white orphan who believes herself possessed by a skin-stealing demon, he slowly uncovers a tapestry of corruption and racial tensions generations in the making.
This harrowing search leads him into an underground network of sinners and saints―and everything in between. An anthropologist who treats orphans like test subjects. A community of charismatic Congolese preachers. Street children who share accounts of sexual abuse and abandonment. A renowned and revered conservationist who vanishes. And then there is the journalist himself, Deni Béchard, lost in his own misunderstanding of privilege and the myth of whiteness, and plagued by traumatic memories of his father. At first seemingly unrelated, these disparate elements coalesce one by one into a map of Richmond Hew’s movements.
Fevered and dreamlike, White is a riveting exploration of whiteness, humanitarianism, and the lies of American exceptionalism and white supremacy.
