There is no story that is not true, [...] The world has no end, and what is good among one people is an abomination with others.
​(Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe)

We proudly announce Rhys Hughes' first book for our Raphus Novellas label: MOMBASA MADRIGAL AND OTHER AFRICAN ESCAPADES, a collection with stories introduced by a exquisite title novelette, extremely clever and imaginativa – a strange kind of fusion, between fiction, essay and travelog.

One of the most extraordinary fabulists of our time, Rhys Hughes offers us in MOMBASA MADRIGAL an unique, exquisite creation – thoughtful, pulsating, intuitive. Something really new in the somewhat conventionalized universe of contemporary narratives. The short stories that close the book, in turn, complement and amplify such an impact.
