Product Overview

Hardly a conventional family history, Green-Eyed Thieves tells the story of the fortunes of a family of crooks?the green-eyed thieves of the title. The matriarch of this unusual family is a university lecturer and an accomplished shoplifter, and her husband is a master thief whose ingeneous exploits?include relieving the Aga Khan of his wardrobe of expensive suits?since they both happened to be the same size. An uncle, universally known as Ten-Per-Cent Farouk, lives with the family in Fordsburg, a suburb of Johannesburg. And Firoze, the narrator of this wickedly humorous novel from South African writer Imraan Coovadia, is a dreamer and a bookworm, who is radically different from, but inextricably bound to, his identical twin, Ashraf.

?
