By William Harrison

WILLIAM HARRISON is the author of eight novels—five of them set in Africa—as well as two previous volumes of short stories, essays, and major screenplays, including the original Rollerball and Mountains of the Moon.

What Readers Are Saying:

"In a Wild Sanctuary is sensitive and full of suspense . . . superb . . . a remarkable voyage into a world of psychological and social morality." --Time

"He is not relating curious anecdotes; he's creating a world. The Buddha in Malibu reminds us once more how truly big William Harrison's talent is." --Dallas Morning News

"Harrison is that rare novelist who can write equally well of action and ideas." --John Leonard

"Though the political geography of The Blood Latitudes may seem at times melodramatic Harrison presents it with a voice that is as compelling in its restraint as it is authentic in its details." --Texas Observer

"Harrison is a compelling storyteller with a sure touch." --Kit Reed
