First UK edition first print hardback of AFRICAN LAUGHTER: Four Visits to Zimbabwe by Doris Lessing and published by HarperCollinsPublishers in 1992. Signed by Lessing on the title page. Numberline is 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.

The book is in near fine condition (grey cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine) with some light general wear. The book is in a near fine unclipped dust jacket which has light creasing to the head and tail of the spine as well as a tiny closed tear to the top corner of the back cover. Internally the pages are otherwise clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

In this portrait of Doris Lessing's homeland, the author recounts the visits she made to Zimbabwe in 1982, 1988, 1989 and 1992, after being banned from the old Southern Rhodesia for 25 years for her political views and opposition to the minority white Government. The visits constitute a journey to the heart of a country whose history, landscape, people and spirit are evoked by the author in a narrative of detail. She embraces every facet of life in Zimbabwe from the lost animals in the bush to political corruption, from AIDS to a successful communal enterprise created by a rural black community, and notes the kind of changes that can only be appreciated by one who has lived there before.
