Dont' miss the launch of Who Killed Piet Barol? by Richard Mason at Love Books
Love Books and Jonathan Ball invite you to the launch of Who Killed Piet Barol? by Richard Mason.
The launch takes place tonight (Wednesday, 12 October) at Love Books in Melville.
About the book
Pretender Piet Barol and singer Stacey Meadows are making a splash in colonial Cape Town but are running out of cash. With creditors at their heels, their furniture business is imploding and only a major win will save them. So Piet enlists two Xhosa men to lead him into the magical forest of Gwadana in search of precious wood.
Meanwhile the Natives Land Act has just abolished property rights for the majority of black South Africans, and whole families have been ripped apart. Piet’s charm and appetite for risk lead him far beyond the privileged white world to a land and community that sees him with new eyes.
A novel about the truth in magic and the enduring consequences of lies.
