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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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 *
'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 *
'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 *
'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 *
'The first part of a powerful trilogy' Charlotte Vowden, Daily Express. * Daily Express *
