Product Overview

"Kick off your shoes, pour yourself a stiff drink and take your hat off to the elder statesman of southern African words--he''s done it again." --Alexandra Fuller
"Vivid and powerful. Highly recommended." --"Library Journal" (starred review)
The author of "Serenity House" and "Kruger''s Alp" (winner of the Whitbread Prize for Fiction) returns with a lyrical and taut novel about the past fifty years of white presence in South Africa, told through a son''s larger-than-life vision of his mother. In Kathleen Healey, acclaimed novelist Christopher Hope crafts a superbly authentic female character. Aviator, big game hunter, and a knitting devotee who once boxed three rounds with Ernest Hemingway, her multitude of lovers came from all over the world. When she fades with illness, her son must carry out her final wishes, and confront his own ability to love. Bitingly funny and inventive, " My Mother''s Lovers" is as fierce and radiant as our romance with Africa.
