"The African Safari Papers" is an intense and outrageous portrait of a family so troubled that their family trip is, in a word, torture. Richard Clark, the narrator of this sharp and madcap novel, is nineteen years old, a drug-addicted, foul-mouthed, sex-crazed young man who is off to Africa on a safari with his parents. Obviously, this is a mistake of magnitude. As Richard smolders with resentment, his voice by turns self-loathing and self-righteous, he documents his trip in a series of journal entries that are funny, sad, and piercingly insightful. Juxtaposed with the hostile environment, the already tense situation becomes explosive: Mom is going insane, Dad drinks compulsively as he ticks off wildlife sightings on his checklist, and Richard is busy getting high on the drugs he has smuggled in his mother's suitcase. Anything can happen, and it does, in this "Catcher in the Rye" for the twenty-first century.
