What Margaret Mead did for Samoa, Colin Turnbull did for Africa. An upper class Oxford-educated Englishman, Turnbull7;s life-long love affair with the African Pygmies made him one of the most famous intellectuals of the 1960s and 6;70s. In an intimate portrait of a remarkable man--at various times a gold-miner, builder of 0;The African Queen,1; and anti-death penalty advocate--Grinker describes how Turnbull fell in love with a beautiful but poor African American named Joe Towles who became as much Turnbul7;s heroic creation as did the Pygmies. For 30 years, they lives as an openly gay, interracial couple in New York City and rural Virginia until Joe7;s death of AIDS in 1988. Devastated, Turnbull buried his own spirit in a second coffin laid next to Towles, gave away most of his money, and until his own death from AIDS in 1994, lived as a Buddhist monk tutored by the Dalai Lama7;s eldest brother. This is a compelling story of a celebrity scholar, his sexuality and his passion for a fiercely lived life.
