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.
