The White Masai by Corinne Hofmann
The White Masai

moosenp, December 7, 2006

Hofmann is an idiot. A doctor in the book tells her she is stupid and that is true. She has an erotic obsession with a Maisai and stalks him. She never attempts to learn about his culture and is shocked when things are not as she thinks they should be. She is horribly ethnocentric. She endangers her life and that of her child because she cannot bear to give up her sexual fantasy. She does not demonstrate any insight and learns nothing during her 4 years with this man. This book is written in a stream of consciousness stilted manner. By the time I was halfway through this waste of paper I had decided to no longer waste any more of my life reading it. I read the end and got out.
