In all of the buzz around the autumn release of The Jazz Files I almost missed this lovely review of my ‘first child’ The Peace Garden. It’s a romantic thriller cum coming-of-age novel set against the backdrop of Apartheid. Although it came out in 2011 people are still buying and reading it. It’s a special book to me as – although it’s not autobiographical – it contains so much of my feelings about living in South Africa, and England. Thank you Belinda for a thoughtful review. The reviewer, Belinda Chaplin, is a South African living in Bosnia so knows a bit about being a ‘stranger in a foreign land’. Read The Peace Garden review here.
