Status: In Progress  |  Genre: Historical Fiction  |  House: Stories by Christian Filostrat

The United States romances Mobutu Sese Seko and gives him everything. He finds happiness in what he always calls the defining relationship of his life - until the Soviet Union relegates itself to the past and Washington’s affection turns to indifference followed by disapproval.

This is the story of what he does to survive.

An international political tale, Variations on Unjust Times explores the lives of people in several countries struggling to survive webs of crumbling castles and intrigues, as they entangle themselves in their own limitations, history, yearnings and what friends and foes have in store for them.
