About the Author
Leon Kukkuk was born in South Africa in 1963. Congenitally at odds with normality, he has led a colourfull, even rackety existence, roaming the globe, points north, east south and west and posing, amongst other things, as a student, a traveler, a tramp, a barman, window cleaner and for the last decade as a proffesional do-gooder. This last pose is perhaps the truest part of his persona. Although sometimes labelled as a Communist and rabble-rouser, he sees himself not as a political idealogue but as a social reformer. He is presently settled in Angola with his daughter, Gabriella.
