Summary
From one of South Africa's finest writers comes a powerful exploration of politics, race and population in the post-Apartheid era. In White Boy Running, Christopher Hope explored what it looked and felt like to grow up in a country gripped by an 'absurd, racist insanity'. Now comes Cafe de Move-on Blues, Hope's contemplation of the situation white South Africans find themselves in today, post-Apartheid. Emigration is accelerating at a rate never seen before, diasporas are spreading from Winnipeg to Wimbledon, and the spectre of neighbouring Zimbabwe looms large as violence spreads. As one by one, the old imperial idols, from Cecil Rhodes to Paul Kruger, are pulled from their pedestals, Hope ponders the question: 'Who is next?' In this intimate and powerful portrait of race, politics and people in South Africa today, Hope, yet again, uses his mesmerising prose to get to the heart of the issue, and to reveal what can be done to stem the flow of whites leaving the rainbow nation
