Frank Coates was born in Melbourne and for many years worked as a telecommunications engineer in Australia and overseas. In 1989 he was appointed as UN technical specialist in Nairobi, Kenya, and spent nearly four years working, travelling and researching in Africa. Frank now lives in Sydney. This is his fifth novel.From AudioFile:
The adventurous story of an Australian ex-pat describes in rich detail the people and environment he encounters in 1980s Kenya. The whimsical yet ironic excerpts from a fictional East African guidebook sound just right, especially when contrasted with other goings-on, such as ivory smuggling, political corruption, and the prevalence of AIDS. Native Australian David Tredinnick's narration is spot-on. His vocal variety and pacing enhance the story, and his characterization of the main character dramatizes his humanity and vulnerability. Tredinnick's African tribal accents are somewhat uneven, but that's easy enough to overlook. Overall, the novel provides an exciting and multilayered glimpse of Africa.
