About this book:

Firepool is a chronicle of South Africa in the 'second transition' - one in which the foundations of the post-apartheid settlement are questioned in all kinds of ways. From the complex legacy of artists like JM Coetzee to the #FeesMustFall protests, and the uncertainty of our nuclear future, Hedley Twidle treats serious subjects with a sense of playfulness and imagination.
Deeply personal, and spanning culture, and ideas, Twidle gets under the skin of South Africa in unexpected ways.
