Mating by Norman Rush

Mating revolves around Americans in Africa and is narrated by a female anthropologist on the make in Botswana. Urbane, intelligent and well read, she is in search of new sensations, warm climate and useful research material. The novel, like all good comic writing, has a dark side; the tone of the book is flawless, the voice is utterly convincing.
Norman Rush was born in San Francisco. Mating won the Irish Times Literature Prize.
