A Good Man in Africa is William Boyd's classic, prize-winning debut novel - winner of the Whitbread Award and the Somerset Maugham Prize Escapee from suburbia, overweight, oversexed... Morgan Leafy isn't overburdened with worldly success. Actually, he is refreshingly free from it. But then, as a representative of Her Britannic Majesty in tropical Kinjanja, 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's daughter when officially banned 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. 'Wickedly funny' The Times 'If a widening grin is the test of a novel's entertainment value in retrospect, A Good Man in Africa romps home' Guardian 'A delight' Washington Post
