When a twenty-nine year-old Indian immigrant arrives from Zanzibar to a cold and bleak post-war London in 1946, he hadn’t expected on finding a mummified corpse in the East End building in which he’d intended to set up shop. Unable to unravel the mystery of the corpse and fearful for his future, he hatches fantastical plans to get rid of it, with unexpected consequences.
He hadn’t planned on romancing the dead man’s nice niece either…
Alexander is a reluctant participant in World War Two. He is one of many Germans who never wanted to war, but it takes this teenager on a journey of disillusionment, self-discovery and ultimate growth. Although fiction, the story and characters are based on well-researched facts.
Much has been written about Germany’s Nazi regime and how Germany’s enemies experienced war. Has enough been written about the other side?
The world is ending. People, animals, plants – there is a universal dying-off of the planet. Rumours persist of a reprieve but none appears. Two dogs and their human companions bond, as they trace a vivid circuit in a region not dissimilar to Cape Town; they encounter the violence and decay as they travel, struggling to survive. It’s a tough passage through societies of degradation and unsettled by a war beyond the mountains that encircle them.
