Both funny and terrible, magical and grimly realistic, this is a coming of age novel about a young boy living in a railway settlement in Durban in the mid-sixties. Its narrator, thirteen-year-old Timus, is part of a large family who struggles to make ends meet, and where the father's obsession with the church has distressing consequences. As the youngest member of his family, he is cocooned in his own world and lags behind his peer group when it comes to the sweet and dark things in life. Although the life he observes around him is often sad and disturbing, the narration is suffused with a sense of wonder and has an emotional resonance that touches the reader's heart.
