In the vast spaces of East Africa lives a close-knit tribe of white expatriates. They all know each other. They meet at dinner parties; they share the same doctors and eat at the same restaurants; they sleep with each other and take the same drugs. Set in contemporary Nairobi, RULES OF THE WILD is at once a sharp-eyed dissection of white society in modern Kenya and the moving story of a young woman, Esme, struggling to make sense of both her place in Africa and her feelings for the two men she loves - Adam, a second-generation Kenyan who is the first to show her the beauty of her adopted land, and Hunter, a British journalist sickened by its horrors. Romantic, often very funny and always compulsively readable, RULES OF THE WILD will be recognised as a classic novel about the white man in Africa, a book to sit beside OUT OF AFRICA and WHITE MISCHIEF.
