Whiteman

by Tony D'Souza
£8.99   paperback  Portobello Books (2007)

Whiteman by Tony D Young, American, and idealistic, the Whiteman bounds into the Ivory Coast with a deep desire to Make a Difference. But then the NGO's funding dries up and he's stranded, unable to establish a water supply for the village and with plenty of time on his hands.
 
With Mamadou as his guardian, he builds himself a thatch-roofed hut, cultivates a field, masters the art of rainforest hunting, and inadvertently tramples all over unspoken taboos, all the while being hopelessly, helplessly, distracted by women, from the village flirt to the local chief's intended wife.
 
Taking place against the backdrop of bloody civil war, this is the story of a whiteman losing his aid-worker illusions and discovering a different, more complicated Africa: perplexing and brutal, beguiling and sexy.
