Summary

This haunting novel delves deeply into unsuspected layers of the human psyche - into realms of fear that lie between men and women, light and darkness and control and abandon.

Sunday Whiteman Summary

Sunday Whiteman by Lindsay Clarke

Austin Palmer and his wife Kay had come, full of dreams and aspirations, to a school deep in the rain-forest of a newly independent West African state. But things had not worked out as they had hoped. When Kay returns to England, Palmer moves away from the school compound into the nearby town of Ogun- Adoubia. Here he is confronted by a power far older than any government, and by his own inner darkness. When that confrontation is over, nobody cares to talk about the Sunday Whiteman. This haunting novel delves deeply into unsuspected layers of the human psyche - into realms of fear that lie between men and women, light and darkness and control and abandon.

Sunday Whiteman Reviews

The impact of the book is uncanny; the settings marvellously real. The ruthlessness of the new rulers, Africa's continuing subservience to tribal instincts and the disintegration of Palmer's marriage and mind are all memorably conveyed. * Weekend Telegraph *
Lindsay Clarke's impressive first novel is skillfully constructed, economically written and ambitious in scope. * The Times Literary Supplement *
This is a novel admirably concerned with real issues... there is both passion and compassion. * The Independent *
