Choke Chain completely and triumphantly defines its own territory - the novel's restraint concealing its building power and its huge compassion. 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.
An extraordinary first novel. It is an astonishing tale of the impact of fatherhood, and brutality on the transition to manhood - a powerfully written story of a young boy growing up. It shows that there are all kinds of ways in which children can be abused, and that psychological abuse impacts on the rest of our lives. Not for the fainthearted, even though the harrowing finish shows that there is still hope. Find similar books Profile.

Alex is twelve, and he lives with his younger brother and his parents in a dirt-poor white neighbourhood in 1980s South Africa. Watching quietly as their mother diminishes in the black light of her husband, they learn that not all adults are right and true - that some have evil bred, or beaten, into them.
