“First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria is a hilarious, smart, and compelling debut. Eve Brown-Waite vividly captures the ex-pat experience, the paradox of trying to save the world while desperately craving a cappuccino and proves that, in some locales, you can be “a little bit pregnant.” The result is a grand adventure, love story, and journey of self-discovery that you will not be able to put down.”
