Karoo Boy

(2004)
A novel by

 
 
Troy Blacklaws's acclaimed debut novel is the remarkable story of a boy coming of age in the wake of tragedy.

When his twin brother dies in a freak accident, Douglas' life begins to unravel. His mother leaves his father, taking Douglas with her to live in the Karoo region, a harsh desert landscape that is a far cry from Cape Town and the seaside life Douglas has always known. In this small village that is wary of outsiders, he makes two friends who change his life forever: a beautiful girl named Marika and an old man named Moses. Immersed in rich language and vivid detail, and set against the backdrop of 1970s South Africa, Karoo Boy is the story of a young man finding his way in the midst of chaos and loss.
