• "Reads like a dream, races along and open-heartedly reveals one corrupt road by which boys should not become men."

    Janice Galloway
  • "Choke Chain completely and triumphantly defines its own territory - the novel's restraint concealing its building power and its huge compassion."

    Alan Warner
  • "His writing is clear and ungilded as he captures the experience of growing up under big African skies, and shows us Alex's world in all its freshness and promise... This is an exceptional debut"

  • "An uncompromising piece about the lives of impoverished white South Africans, written in a style which owed something to Raymond Carver’s laconic, chiselled sentences"
