Mad Nomad

Mad Nomad

Author(s): Eric Jay Sonnenschein

Location(s): Tunisia

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): Contemporary

Mad Nomad is a novel about the Peace Corps in North Africa that blends adventure, comedy and romance. The setting is Tunisia, a Muslim country tucked between the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert, in the period after Vietnam and before the age of Islamic radicalism. Mad Nomad describes the interplay between three cultures-American, French and Tunisian-and shows how Americans are viewed in societies we influence and disrupt. Mad Nomad varies from a typical Peace Corps narrative. Rather than depict in reverent detail the interaction of earnest Americans with grateful natives, it tells a sardonic, frequently ribald tale about a young American who flees a tough economy for an African adventure.
