About this book:

With this collection of nine remarkable short stories set in the Cape Flats, Brian Fredericks establishes himself as a major new voice in Afrikaans. He closely examines the thin line between right and wrong, the brutality of poverty and also the tenderness between a mother and her prodigal son. Characters come alive between these pages, whether it be the vierhoeke in Pollsmoor, Elsiesrivier or Ruyterwacht.
