Overview

‘Hell hath no fury as a cross-dresser scorned’ proves a poor elucidation for Anthony Fortesque’s reaction over his thwarted Out of Africa campaign. The hapless Anthony, his romantic misconceptions ruthlessly spurned by the dashing Hamish MacFadden - an indifferent substitute for Anthony’s ‘big white hunter’ fantasy figure - sees his African ideal rapidly changing to the more vengeful Hate of Africa. Aided and abetted by the glamorous Petra (cojones) Gonzales and cohorts Mike and Damon, Anthony finds himself drawn into an evil scenario way beyond his wildest imaginings. From the elegant drawing rooms of London’s exclusive Belgravia to the hidden savagery of Zimbabwe and the superficiality of Cape Town, Anthony’s anticipated African dream soon degenerates into a nightmare which can only end with its grotesque awakening.

Meet the Author

Robin Anderson, an internationally
known author and interior designer
was born in Scotland and brought up
in the former Southern Rhodesia (now
Zimbabwe) and South Africa. Before
attending Rhodes University (the Oxford
of South Africa) he hosted his own radio
programme in Rhodesia (‘The Golden
Voice of Teenage Half Hour!) and worked
as a cub reporter on ‘The Bulawayo
Chronicle’ during his gap year.
Leaving South Africa, he spent the early Sixties working
with interior design companies in Paris, New York and London.
He set up his own design company in London in 1970. Although
interior design had been his first interest, the designer never stopped
writing. Nowadays he makes numerous television appearances
166 Nazca Plains
and is a regular guest on selected radio programmes, gives regular
lectures on his writing.
His first novel, REGINA, A NOVEL OF SOME EXTREMES,
was published in 1998. The novel gives a salacious look ‘behind
the scenes’ of the glamorous but bitchy and competitive world of
interior design, following the path of the unpleasant but talented
Reginald Forbes as he cuts a swathe through the lives of his many
unsuspecting victims.
Though London-based, the author travels extensively and
the benefits of this are apparent in the various settings to his books.
The Amazon, the Yucatan, Borneo, Myanmar, China, Russia, Japan,
Sri Lanka, India, Egypt, Morocco, Kenya, Australia, The Maldives,
Mauritius, Central Europe, Canada, North and South America plus
the majority of the Caribbean Islands have also been visited. He has
walked the Inca Trail in Peru; climbed Mount Kinabulu (Borneo)
and Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania).
The author is a strong believer in the protection of endangered
species. In 1959 he took part in ‘Operation Noah’ which involved
the rescue of hundreds of animals from the rising waters of the new
Kariba Dam being across the mighty Zambezi River in the north/
western part of Zimbabwe.
He is also the proud ‘foster parent’ to four Orang-utans
living at the famous Orang-utan Sanctuary in Sepilok, Borneo plus
two elephants, Marlene and Marlon, who live happily on a ranch in
Zimbabwe.
