Description: In this mesmerizing debut novel, Francesca Marciano evokes the startlingly exotic world of contemporary expatriates living in Nairobi. Relief workers befriend wildlife researchers, artists exchange their intimate secrets with documentary filmmakers. They meet at dinner parties, they sleep with each other, they argue about the best way to negotiate their existence in a land they can never hope to claim.

At the center of it all is the young and beautiful Esme, a free spirit in search of love and a place to call home. In Adam, a safari leader with an almost holy appreciation of the terrain, she thinks she has found what she is looking for. Then she meets Hunter, a spitfire journalist outraged at the poverty and violence with which most Africans live. Combining the romanticism of Isak Dinesen with a prose style reminiscent of Ernest Hemingway, Marciano juxtaposes the magnificent beauty of the Kenyan landscape with the human capacity for carelessness and brutality. Erotic, sensual, lush with detail and insight, "Rules of the Wild" evokes a land that demands catharsis -- and a heroine suddenly, exhaltingly alive.
