From the international bestselling author of Wish Me Luck as you Wave me Goodbye comes an enchanting novel of late 19th Century Africa.

Intelligent, charming and handsome, Jean-Patrice has Paris at his feet. But when he embarks on a passionate affair with the beautiful wife of a superior, his brilliant career in the Civil Service goes south.

Packed off to the equatorial colony of Gabon to avoid a scandal, Jean-Patrice is plunged from the City of Light into the Heart of Darkness. In the company of cannibals, ghosts, witchdoctors and a gorilla named Chloe, he is forced to revise everything he has learned and find the true meaning of courage and love.

Told with humor and compassion, this is the story of a young man's coming of age in the last months of the 19th Century.
