Whilst on holiday in Kenya, Corinne Hoffman fell in love with a Masai warrior. Eventually she moved into a tiny shack with him and his mother and spent four years in Kenya.

However, slowly but surely, the dream began to crumble. She eventually fled back home with her baby daughter. From wild animals through starvation to ritual mutilation, this is a book steeped in humanity and one that tells a fascinating tale.

At once a hopelessly romantic love story and a gripping adventure yarn, The White Masai is a compulsive read.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'I've been completely riveted by it - in fact haven't put it down all morning. What an amazing story!... one of the bravest and most vivid I've read in years and I'm not surprised it's a bestseller' - Deborah Moggach 'Hofmann is a talented writer, describing with unflinching detail the consequences of a passion that combines the element of a holiday romance with troubling fantasies about the noble savage. Gripping' - Joan Smith, Independent 'This extraordinary story is a dashing tale of love and adventure in contemporary Kenya' - Mavis Cheek, Daily Mail Critic's Choice 'A deliciously readable book - it really is possible to gulp it down in one long sitting' - Mail on Sunday 'The White Masai has already sold four million copies in Europe and has now been turned into a big Hollywood film. Theses successes suggest that, in publishing terms at least, Corinne Hofmann has finally struck gold' - Ireland on Sunday 'An extraordinary and unputdownable tale' - Bookseller 'It's a truly riveting read, better than any reality TV show' - Publishing News 'It is the most extraordinary story (as the four million people who have already bought the book in Europe would no doubt agree!)' - Robert Gwyn Palmer (Sunday Telegraph) 'Extraordinary' - Hollywood Reporter"
