First dirty book I ever read

Flamingo, aka When Flamingos Fall, by Mark Oliver aka Mark Sundancer.  I've been looking for it for 30 years and found it on eBay, finally.  

I never found it in the Library Of Congress or the British Library because I remember it as Flamingo, but it was published as When Flamingos Fall and later reissued as Flamingo.  

It's a serious novel set in Kenya after the Mau Mau Uprising, with enough sex to keep a 12 year old boy very interested in 1971, when I stole it from my Mom's paper sackful of romance novels.  

This is the cover I remember so fondly....
