Morbid yet gripping, this work tells a tale seldom recounted in the new South Africa: the effects of supporting apartheid on the white population. Exploring the gulf between how we perceive ourselves versus how others view us, this narrative follows Angus Smith, who is gradually revealed to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Psychotic and unreliable, Angus transitions from a terminally disaffected husband to a perversely inspired engineer of his own fate. A bitter and disturbing but compulsively readable book, it raises unsettling questions about a socially fractured society.
