Inhaltsangabe: Set in Darfur, the novel is a dramatic and tragic story of an improbable love between two people caught up in an African famine: Mogga and Leila, a black and an Arab, should supposedly not even like each other. But, as the country teeters on the edge of catastrophic famine and civil war looms, they cling to each other's dignity, humour and humanity. Both work for the same European aid agency. Both are vulnerable, targets for hatred and resentment. Both are strangely, triumphantly resilient. Based on his own experience of disaster agencies, Falla's novel is fiercely authentic, poignant and darkly witty. As the expatriates bicker, their English team leader struggles to unravel the evil politics behind the famine, and reaches a highly controversial decision. But he may not be able to save the local people who have put themselves on the line. The foreigners can always take themselves off home when things go wrong; for the locals, it may already be too late as the book builds towards a terrifying climax. A novel rich in drama and irony, and set in a vast and eerily beautiful landscape.
Über den Autor: Jonathan Falla worked intermittently for various aid agencies overseas for fourteen years before moving to Scotland to concentrate on writing. He also worked as a part-time nurse, and as well as writing and reviewing for the press, he is a successful playwright. He lives in Fife.
