I have been lucky enough to be in a writing group with Henry for the past few years and have watched him grow as a writer and a critic. i love his honesty, his sense of humour and most of all his dedication to his craft. Enjoy this book...and as he says 'It's Just for Fun!' BRAVO! Hope the next one comes out soon!!!
Although the narrative is fictitious in parts, the feelings, thoughts, and outlook all remain true to the author’s world view which allows many of the stories the gritty authenticity that they carry.
He evokes much of the atmosphere of sixties South Africa, from the insularity of a sheltered upbringing to the eye-opening events that occurred during those times under a repressive and authoritarian government.
His softer side is evoked very clearly in poignant stories such as” Abigail’s Notebook” whilst the harsh realities of being black or poor and white in an Apartheid society are clearly and concisely illustrated in stories such as “Julia”, “Moses”, and “Olga” and his ancestral roots are lightly evoked in “Miriam the washerwoman”.
As an anthology with many diverse parts, in my opinion, the success of this book depends heavily on the author writing about matters close to his heart and creating a genuine and appealing set of stories reflecting a range of emotions and situations. In the uniquely South African flavour of many of the stories combined with the British outlook the author has compiled an interesting and multi-faceted anthology designed to captivate the reader through different stages of his life. A very enjoyable and engaging read.
