DESCRIPTION
Hillbrow, 1967. The New York of Africa. Someone wrote that the place would soon have more people per square kilometre than Tokyo. Everyone quoted that article to everyone. Some even cut it out and kept it folded in their wallets.
 
While other boys daydream about racing cars and football, eleven-year-old stutterer Phen sits reading to his father. In number four Duchess Court, Phen’s dad looks like a Spitfire pilot behind his oxygen mask.
 
But real life is different from the daring adventures in the books Phen reads and he is forced to grow up faster than other boys his age.
 
This is until Heb Thirteen Two shows up: in his pinstriped suit pants and tie-dyed psychedelic top, the stranger could be any old bum, or a boy’s special angel come to live among men.
 
Poignant, witty and wise, John Hunt’s The Boy Who Could Keep a Swan in His Head  is a meditation on being alive and shows us the power of books when we need them the most.
