For the vagabond pack of ex-pat Europeans, Indian Tanzanians and wealthy Africans at Moshi's International School, it's all about getting high, getting drunk and getting laid. Their parents - drug dealers, mercenaries and farmers gone to seed - are too dead inside to give a damn. Outwardly free but empty at heart, privileged but out of place, these kids are lost, trapped in a land without hope. They can try to get out, but something will always drag them back - where can you go when you believe in nothing and belong to nowhere? Exile is the first of three powerful novels about growing up as an ex-pat in Tanzania. Ejersbo's first novel, Nordkraft, the Danish Trainspotting, was a phenomenal bestseller. Ejersbo's trilogy, only published after his death in 2008, has proved to be another cult and critical sensation.

Recensioner i media

'The first part of a powerful trilogy' Charlotte Vowden, Daily Express. * Daily Express * 'Exile offers a shocking insight into the state of Africa in the 1980's and the failure of Europeans to save it, or themselves, from the downward spiral' The Skinny. * Skinny * 'This fine epic of loneliness and alienation in a beautiful land that seems to be sinking shows that he was a writer of huge talent' Kate Sunders, The Times. * The Times * 'Seldom has anyone written anything so insistent and impassioned, so glowing hot and ice-cold, so heartfelt and so cynical' Klaus Rothstein, Danish Literary Magazine. * Danish Literary Magazine * 'There is more to contemporary Scandinavian fiction than thrillers ... a hardcore version of an American high school rom-com, with drug-fuelled orgies replacing drugstores and the Prom' Michael Arditti, Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
