About this book:

A piercingly funny yet poignant novel by the author of Dog Eat Dog. Bafana (nicknamed Advo for advocate), is a young man with a weight on his shoulders. After flunking his law studies at the University of Cape Town, he now has to find a way to either admit the truth to his family or somehow find a job that will allow him to continue fooling them. Soon after his arrival back home in Soweto he meets up with a Nigerian, Yomi, who promises to help him solve his problems. What should Bafana do? Should he bite the bullet and confess the truth to his mother and uncle, or should he rather take up Yomi’s suggestion to buy a law degree and start practising as an attorney?
