Get A Life

Bloomsbury 187pp £16.99 order from our bookshop

Get A Life is not about one life but four: it examines two marriages in South Africa, that of an ecologist named Paul and his wife Benni/Berenice (alternating names for the alternate ways in which she is viewed from one sentence to the next) and that of Paul’s parents, Lyndsay and Adrian.
