Oor hierdie boek:

Are we frogs in a boiling pot or a stressed but resilient nation trying to make sense of bizarre times? Are we being ruled by an African liberation movement or a fourteenth-century Italian church? And why do SUV drivers look so confused?

Tom Eaton explores these and other questions about modern life in South Africa with the razor-sharp, laugh-out-loud style that has made him one of South Africa's most beloved commentators.

Lesers sê

‘Eaton couldn’t have timed this book better even if he had tried. It comes as the concept of “truth’’ is under the most immense challenge. If you only take one thing from it, that should be that life won’t seem so terrible if you manage your expectations and see it as it is, rather than what you imagined.’

- Business Day editor Lukanyo Mnyanda


‘He is an all-seeing, all-skewering satirical Eye of Sauron – only taller, funnier, more handsome and he looks a bit more like Jesus.’

- Darrel Bristow-Bovey
