Read full description of the books The Dubious Salvation of Jack V.:
It's 1989, and in the dying years of the Apartheid regime, eleven-year-old Jack Viljee considers life to be simple. He has firm views on race (complex), politics (straightforward), poofdas (inoffensive), God (dangerous) and sex (bewildering). The son of an Afrikaans father and an English mother, wedged between a strident older and a favoured younger sister, Jack allies himself with the family's beloved maid, Susie.
But the Viljee household has been upset by the arrival of Percy, Susie's fifteen-year-old son. Percy - young, bored and full of rage - makes everything awkward and embarassing for Jack. After one particularly humiliating event, Jack betrays Susie. The world, it turns out, is not so simple.
Read information about the authorI was born and raised in South Africa and lived in New Zealand for a few years. I moved to London in 2005. In my twenties, I was a failed playwright but when I turned thirty, I decided this was undignified and decided to become a failed author instead. This seemed more glamorous. But then hey - I got published: UK May 19 2011 (Cape); US August 30 2011 (FSG).
During the day I'm a freelance digital producer. This ensures that I enjoy life's little pleasures like food and shelter.
