The first major novel by the author of the critically-acclaimed short story collection Whites.
A comedy of manners on the grandest scale, the story revolves around two Americans on the loose (one of them on the prowl) in developing Africa. It follows a woman's search for a worthy male, which takes her from her academic anthropology studies to a utopian matriarchal community in Botswana. A modern, international, male rewriting of Pride and Prejudice, this is a bold and extraordinary book.
Winner of the Irish Times International Fiction Prize.
