“It’s excellent … a drily satirical tour of the world. This tour takes in Swedish liberals, Colonel Gaddafi and of course, apartheid and the South African Prime Minister B J Vorster”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
After previously reading the 100 Year Old Man when I saw this I knew it had to be included in my Summer Reading List for the Foxy Bookshelf. I’m very pleased to say it absolutely lived up to my expectations and I completely and utterly loved it.
Nombeko, the book’s protagonist, a South African latrine cleaner is the most adorable person, and I seriously wanted to climb into the book and be her friend. Along the way she ceases to exist, tagging along with others, some of whom also cease to exist. Eventually she ends up with something else that definitely doesn’t exist and for something non-existent it’s a big, big problem!
