Manufacturer Description

Lions, Kisses and Petrodollars is a lighthearted, romantic adventure. The tumultuous love affair of Geoff and Michelle in the late 1960s and a questionable real estate transaction in Canada are the backdrops to an accurate, though irreverent, humorous, and politically incorrect still photograph of the post-independence Africa.
