On the edge of the great rift: three novels of Africa
This volume contains three comic and sinister novels set against Africa's vibrant landscape. In Fong and the Indians, a Chinese immigrant in a ramshackle East African country learns to survive by making friends with his enemies; The Girls at Play is the story of white female teachers at an isolated school for African girls in the Kenyan Bush; and Jungle Lovers is the "comic and disturbing" story of an insurance salesman abducted by revolutionary terrorists in Malawi.
