We are watching the oven door for these upcoming books:
Bom Boy BY Yewande Omotoso:
‘Bom Boy’ was published in September 2011 by Cape Town based Modjaji Books. It is available in South African book stores, Kalahari.net, Amazon.com, Kindle, African Books Collective and Loot.co.za. ‘Bom Boy’ will soon be published and released in Nigeria.
Leke is a young adult, adopted and living in Cape Town. We meet him and meet his struggle to fit in. Unfolding in parallel is the story of Oscar and Elaine, Leke’s biological parents, told 20 years earlier with Elaine pregnant and Oscar imprisoned. The story moves from Leke and his habit of stalking people; to Oscar’s letters to his unborn son about a family curse that devours love. When Leke finally reads these letters we travel back in time to uncover mysteries and strange cures that open closed hearts.
