Er en smule skuffet over Eksil, men har en fornemmelse af at bogen skal ses i sammenhaeng med de naeste to boeger i serien. ( )
  UllaD | Feb 4, 2010 |
"Romanens underspillede kritik af kolonialismen knytter sig til denne ’imellemhed’, for mange af romanens personer befinder sig netop uden for de modsætningspar, som kolonialismen bygger på, mellem hvid og sort ikke mindst.

Det er vilkåret for mange i dag og bliver det formentlig for mange flere – at det ikke giver mening at sige, hvor man kommer fra, men hvor man er.

Om alt det ville man gerne have hørt Jakob Ejersbo fortælle nærmere i de interview, som burde have ledsaget bogen, men som døden har afskåret os fra.

I stedet må vi glæde os til de kommende bind i hans livsværk."

Book description
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.

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.… (more)
