Christopher Hope's new novel, My Mother's Lovers, is a remarkable dissection of 20th-century Africa, says Giles Foden. Ernest Hemingway swoops down like Superman with the epigraph to Christopher Hope's eighth novel, "In Africa a thing is true at first light and a lie by noon", but within the frame of the story itself, he's merely an aid to characterisation: principally that of Kathleen Healey, the mother of the title.

Perhaps Christopher Hope had her in mind, since even the initials of his presiding character are the same. My Mother's Lovers bears this out. When the younger Kathleen spins over Africa, in the days of white supremacy, she is like a disconnected bird. As an old lady she brings people together only by dying, her son, the narrator Alexander, returning from Malaysia in response to a telephone call chilling in its lack of specificity or poignancy. Kathleen is the most unmotherly of mums, sometimes pursuing her son like a harpy, at others almost wooing him like a lover.
Once it seemed to Kathleen Healey that Africa was empty and all of it belonged to her. An aviator, big game hunter and knitting devotee, who once boxed three rounds with Ernest Hemingway, she would land her plane wherever and whenever she chose. She was free with her favours, too, and her multitude of lovers came from all over Africa. When Kathleen dies, her only son returns to Johannesburg to carry out her last wishes and must confront the final part of his mother's legacy - his capacity for love
