Exile by Jakob Ejersbo( Book )

57 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Revolution by Jakob Ejersbo( Book )

41 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exile laid bare the lives of listless teenage expats in Tanzania; Revolution shifts the focus to the African and Indian Tanzanians they live among...Moses, a worker in a lethal Tanzanite mine, who risks it all every day in the hope of striking it rich; Rachel, who leaves the countryside to make a living, but finds herself in a city where everyone sees her as a whore in waiting; Shakila, who manages to escape to the States, but not from racial prejudice. This is their reality - drowning in corruption, the need to graft and scrap, selling their morals and their bodies as needs be. The Africa Trilogy is at once epic and minutely human, because Ejersbo never fails to show compassion for his characters: however corrupted or morally blemished they may become, they are worth a better life
Liberty by Jakob Ejersbo( Book )

42 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two young men from very different backgrounds: Christian is son to Danish ex-pats; Marcus works as a servant for European families, hoping that one will eventually take him back with them. Their friendship defines a divided continent. Friends from childhood, they become closer when Christian is kicked out of school. He is desperate to stay in Tanzania, and the two decide to start a nightclub together. But both are caught up in complex relationships, and are unwilling to share the wealth that would support their families. And something else is also not quite right: Christian wants to be African and Marcus wants to be European. Things can only go wrong
