Point Lenana

A Novella by

A novella of love and war in Kenya from the author of Tennis and the Masai, the No 3 best-seller.

After more than 50 years, the body of a German climber is discovered on the glacier of Mount Kenya. Perfectly preserved by the cold and ice, the man is still as handsome as he was in the summer of 1939. Nursing her memories of the approaching world war, an old lady flies out from England to attend his funeral.

Nicholas Best's books are translated into many languages. Formerly the Financial Times fiction critic, he was long-listed in 2010 for the Sunday Times-EFG Bank 30,000 award, the biggest short story prize in the world. For more details, see
