summary A Good Man in Africa

A Good Man in Africa review Ù 3 Nja it was not very constructive of him to get involved in wholesale bribery Nor was it exactly oiling his way up the ladder to hunt down the improbably pointed breasts of his boss' daughter when officially b. Setting Kinjanja West Africa In his debut novel William Boyd tells the story of Morgan Leafy secretary to the British High Commissioner in the town of Nkongsamba a thoroughly jaded and not particularly likeable character who has been in the country for several years and although generally disliking it has no particular ambition to do anything else Through his often well meaning actions Morgan gets involved in blackmail adultery body snatching election tampering and bribery and the outcomes are rarely the intended onesI have read several of William Boyd s novels but liked this one the least of all of them perhaps it was because it was a debut novel and he was just finding his feet as an author perhaps it was the high expectations generated from cover blurb describing the novel as uproariously funny The Observer certainly if I was going to recommend a book about Africa that was uproariously funny it would be Indecent Exposure or Riotous Assembly which are definitely that This one to me was not didn t especially like the central character so this was a bit of a miss for me Still won t put me off reading other books by him which I already have as I have enjoyed the four others of his I have read 610

A Good Man in Africa review Ù 3 Anned from horizontal delights by a nasty dose Falling back on his deep laid reserves of misanthropy and guile Morgan has to fight off the sea of humiliation betrayal and ju ju that threatens to wash over him.
