Two young men from very different backgrounds. Christian is the son of Danish ex-pats; Marcus works as a house boy for a Swedish family, hoping they will eventually take him back to Europe with them. Their friendship defines a divided continent. When they decide to go into business together - a teenage dream of playing at discos - they unwittingly set a collision course. But will it be love or money that tears the two apart? Spanning a decade from the dawn of the 1980s, the story of Marcus and Christian's dissolving friendship plays out amid a vast cast of characters, all fighting to make their way in a country defined by corruption. As the Tanzanian authorities and European aid agencies compete to line their own pockets, the rise of 'the disease' threatens to lay waste to an already stricken continent.

About the Author:

Jakob Ejersbo made his literary breakthough with Nordkraft, a searingly realistic novel that changed the face of Danish literature. From 1974-7 and 1983-4 he lived in Moshi in Tanzania. He died in 2008 and did not live to see the publication of The Africa Trilogy. Mette Petersen's previous translations include My Friend Jesus Christ by Lars Husum and Jakob Ejersbo's Africa Trilogy.
