avatarMad Mischief, a passionate novel written with grace and humility, takes us on a mesmerizng rollercoaster of a journey into the wild grandeur of Sub-Saharan Africa, as a deeply introspective woman driven into a hallucinatory state by a dangerous mixture of anti-depressants and anti-malarial drugs battles the misogynistic behavior of her husband and her Safari guide.  With her very survival at stake, she can only rely upon her inner strength, which becomes increasingly fragile, as she attempts against all odds to stay one step ahead of disaster.
