9780192727077: The North Wind and the Sun

Torn between his adoration for his wife and young son and the irresistible draw of the criminal underworld, Shatterproof Bhekuzulu is headstrong, smart, cunning, and strangely endearing. The Lazarus of the tsotsi world, Shatterproof dithers between his need for redemption and his love for illicit scheming. Violent, funny, and intriguing, this story paints a colorful picture of a South African hustler during the apartheid—one so magnetic it hurts to watch him dig his own grave, one disastrous decision at a time.

About the Author:

David Dinwoodie Irving has been a globe-trotting surfer, a professional musician, and an innovative filmmaker.


Review:

`With the Fables of La Fontaine, Wildsmith turned Wordsmith, retelling the tales with a simplicity that enhances the complexity of the illustrations... dazzling, semi-abstract backgrounds, with pinks and purples dotted with shimmering, close-toned blobs of viridian green and cerulean blue
that dance before your eyes.
'
Joanne Carey, The Guardian
