Memoir


“. . . hilarious and unblinkingly honest, Buffoon is a tale from the heart”
—Wendy Kann, author of CASTING WITH A FRAGILE THREAD

 

“… profound and powerful stuff”
—Hannes Wessels, author of PK VAN DER BYL: AFRICAN STATESMAN

 

This is a tale of redemption after a descent into the ether – set against a primal African backdrop; it purports to be a good read but also to have redeeming social value by providing insight into the solution of a fatal and universal malady – by turns humorous, dark, historically informative and, just possibly, uplifting.

 

The story, given in monologue by an ‘anti-hero’, begins in eastern Zimbabwe with ‘the drinking night that had everything’, including a brush with death amid the general pandemonium. It sets the tragicomic theme of a life gone off the rails in a setting that is luxurious, exotic and violent.

The narrative maintains momentum throughout and connects the disparateness of crime, killing, genius and saintliness through a sequence of travel to all corners of the world. There is a strong metaphysical overprint to this journey and readers will come out the other side able to identify, at some level, with the text, somewhat refreshed, energized and made stronger in their life’s affirmation. In essence, this is the purpose of Buffoon and the basis of its claim to be one of a kind.
