A Cure for Serpents

The Duke of Pirajno arrived in North Africa in 1924. For the next eighteen years his experiences as a doctor in Libya, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Somaliland, provided him with opportunities and experiences rarely given to a European. He brings us stories of noble chieftains and celebrated courtesans, of Berber princes and Tuareg entertainers, of giant elephants, and a lioness who fell in love with the author.


Alberto Denti di Pirajno (7 March, 1886 – 15 January, 1968) was an Italian writer, medical doctor, and gastronome. His first novel, Ippolita, was awarded the "Orio Vergani" prize. Alberto Denti died in Rome in 1968.
