A fascinating insight to the life of an expat in the seventies. A great read which was exciting, amusing and a little erotic. It takes you on a journey from Africa across Europe encountering many larger than life characters from the underworld of the mafia to owners of seedy nightclubs. The ending was brilliant.

An amusing and easy read, no doubt built on the back of the author's own experiences in that part of Africa. Slightly disappointed by the low key ending. However his description and mood of Harare is spot on having visit it during UDI, and immediately afterwards. Gerry Gurney.

Clearly based on the author's own experience - Playwhites is full of vivid detail, authentic touches and love, lust and violence. A graphic journey into the world of segregation, race and Africa through events surrounding the protagonist's life. I heard bits of this on a peaceful Aegean island in the mid-90s and congratulations Mr Parker in bringing it to a wider audience!

Clearly written by a man who has widely travelled and knows himself quite well, this travelogue is an amazingly perceptive narrative of life in those times. Highly recommended to Hash House Harriers who clearly are represented by quite a few of the characters despite the authors attempt to disguise the rather bizarre characters. Recommended.
