Brian Jones and Jane Morris

Wim Boswinkel

»The novel is an interesting amalgam of genres, drifting in and out of allegory, satire, romance and myth. It will not be well received by the bigots and the hypocrites in our midst — and that is to its great credit.«

Erina

Johan comes to Africa to manage a tea plantation. He meets Erina, and his life changes forever. The story takes a leap into the unknown, cleverly blending an African setting with the fantastic premise at its core: the arrival of a black female Christ-figure. The use of AIDS as a weapon to effect the ultimate defeat of Satan adds a powerful and provocative dimension.

Erina won Best First Book at the Zimbabwe Book Publishers Association awards
