Combining the dark political ironies of Mating, the decadence of White Mischief, and the sweep of Out of Africa, Rules of the Wild tells the story of Esmeralda, a beautiful young woman who comes to Kenya after the death of her father, a well-known Italian poet. Fleeing the strictures of Europe for the open spaces of East Africa, Esme discovers in the white expatriate community a dose-knit crowd that must negotiate its existence in a world of great physical beauty and unforeseen terror -- a world in which they know they will never truly belong. Rules of the Wild tells of Esme's struggle to make sense of her place in Africa, and of her feelings for the two men she comes to love -- Adam, who shows her the beauty of her adopted land, and Hunter, a journalist sickened by its horrors.
Passionate and intelligent, bristling with energy and wit, this is a stunning novelistic debut.
