Errol convinces Gray to return to the site of her first triumph - Kenya, where she had discovered an isolated tribe of Masai who worshipped American World War II deserter Charles Corgi as a god. While there, they meet Raphael Sarasola, a 24-year-old graduate assistant whose dark good looks and insolent manner make him a double for the dead Corgi. And as Errol watches, amazed and injured, Gray falls in love.
From its exotic beginning to its chilling end, The Female of the Species is a hypnotic, beautifully written novel. Through Errol, Raphael, and Gray, Lionel Shriver explores love in all its desperation.

"From beginning to end, The Female of the Species is intelligent, sensual, absolutely fascinating and thoroughly extraordinary. And that's not half the praise it deserves." (Richmond Times-Dispatch)
