Summary Excerpt Comments

Mud Between Your Toes is a memoir about a white, gay, boy growing up during the 1960s/1970s Rhodesian Bush War. Written with passion and wit, it is a tale of independence, loss and identity.

Peter Wood is an African. He is white, but he also holds a Chinese passport. And he is also gay.

Growing up during the 1970s on his family's farm in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), Peter was swiftly introduced to a harsh world in which friends and relatives were murdered in ambushes—and the line between blacks and whites was drawn in blood.

As travel bans and UN sanctions caused a deepening chasm between his country and the rest of the world, Peter struggled with his identity as a white Rhodesian and later in life, when living in London, he nurtured his skills as a photographer—and finally found the courage to come out as gay.

Now a twenty-year resident of Hong Kong and an official Chinese national, Peter is arguably the only white, gay, African man in China. But his wildly entertaining anecdotes delve much deeper than that superficial—yet admittedly fascinating—label. These stories, based largely on Peter's childhood diary entries, offer insight into the universal human experience: from tragedies and triumphs to catastrophes and, perhaps most importantly, joy.

The book is based on the author's diaries that he wrote and is peppered with anecdotes and stories about the people who influenced him – the good and the notoriously bad.

It traces his life back from modern day Hong Kong and into his past.
