* WINNER OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN M-NET LITERARY AWARD *

A tale of deception, misunderstanding, and betrayal set between modern-day Africa and Nazi-occupied France.

Haunted by his dreams of the Masai, Tim Curtiz journeys to East Africa to research and write a screenplay about the enigmatic Claudia Cohn-Casson, a French anthropologist who studied the Masai in the late 1930s and was then deported to Auschwitz upon her return to Paris.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is nothing tired or derivative here; the writing is sharp, the characters vividly drawn, the narrative sinuous . . . it confirms Cartwright's individuality and promise . . . In its bold design, as well as its wonderfully detailed portrait of African village life, it achieves real distinction * Sunday Telegraph *
Cartwright makes his pages as vividly sensuous as they are caustically intelligent * The Sunday Times *
It is like a little death to put this book down * Times Literary Supplement *
The book works well, as a story, as a compendium of reflections on race and nationhood and as a novel with a refined and distinctive narrative voice . . . an elegantly complex, unfailingly intelligent novel * Spectator *
Remarkable . . . The prose is spare and exact, yet glorious * Daily Mail *
There is so much to take in along the way, so many essential truths, so much pain and beauty, that Masai Dreaming takes on the compulsive quality of a dream from which one is reluctant to awake. If I were ever asked to select a few books that might help to change the world, Cartwright's would be near the top of the list * Midweek *
A provocative novel * Esquire *
