SA reader in London, 16 Feb 2001
A great book, well worth the read! Both funny and tragic, you really grow to love the Bernade family as they struggle through life the best way they know how. The characters are all interesting, different and believeable and it was certainly fascinating from a middle class South Africans point of view to get a flavour of how it must have been for poor whites in the old SA.
