Kalk Bay Books & Modjaji Books
invite you to the launch of

Shooting Snakes
by
Maren Bodenstein
Maren will be in conversation with Donald Paul. 
 An old man, Johannes, spends much of his days sitting on the veranda overlooking the dusty veld. He remembers his childhood on a remote mission station in Venda and the internment of his father in a British camp at Koffiefontein during World War II. His reminiscences of his sister and of freely connecting with the people and the world around them, are disturbed by the arrival of his daughter Susanna, who forces her father to confront her anger with him. As his health deteriorates, Johannes remembers his father’s return to the mission station that resulted in tragic consequences.
