Fast Forward from Schoonwater

This is a funny, quirky and poignant coming-of-age story of a generation of ordinary South Africans who had to stumble their way through extraordinary times. It's a story of hope as past and present come together to allow for a new and more hopeful beginning...The reader meets a series of bizarre characters: an epileptic truck driver who has visions of the Mother Mary with tears of blood running down her cheeks; the Baking Queen of the Northern Free State who tries to save six asparagus quiches, and kills herself and ten schoolchildren in the process; aunty Baby Bothma, who fled her home town only to find solace in the arms of a Polish count and his wife.
