about this book

Whether they are Americans, Brits, or a stubborn and suicidally moral Dutchman, Norman Rush's whites are not sure why they are in Botswana; their uncertainty makes them do odd things. Funny, sad, and deeply knowing, polished throughout to a diamond glitter, Whites is a magnificent collection of stories.

"Norman Rush is unusually gifted with a sense of place, and deep insights lie beneath the wit and irony of these stories...the best writing about Americans in Africa since Paul Theroux."--Nadine Gordimer

"Remarkable...each story is finished, each has a palpable rise and fall, a current of despair and humor and weariness and surprise...These are stories of bottled-up witness, stories that need telling."--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
