Serpent's Tail, 2008 - 315 páginas
Abebe Bikila was the first African to win an Olympic gold medal. He won the marathon running barefoot in Rome in 1960 and won again wearing shoes in Tokyo four years later. This book tells his story. It is a story entwined with the decline and fall of Ethiopia's last emperor.
