Product Description

Details

Robin Jenkins returned to the Far East in the 1950s for "Leila", a tender love story involving a Scottish teacher, Andrew Sandilands, and Leila, the exotically beautiful daughter of a local politician. Leila is, like her father, implicated in the revolutionary tremors shaking the small country and the lovers are soon torn between the small-minded mores of the expatriate community and Leila's determined efforts to play a role in her country's future. The masked oppression of the regime forms the backdrop to a novel where personal dramas collide with the legacies of colonialism.
