About this title


Karolina Ferreira, an entomologist, goes to a small Free State town to do research on the survival strategies of a rare moth species. During the day, Willie September, a natural healer, introduces Karolina to the mysteries of the drought-stricken veld. At night she is introduced and exposed to the town’s political intrigue and power games, while playing snooker, drinking whisky in the ladies bar, and dancing the tango.

This novel was published originally in Afrikaans under the title, Karolina Ferreira and is reworked and revised here by the author.
