Weird. Wonderful. I got a friend's copy autographed and then stole it. A continent-hopping American Gods in authentic South African guise. My favourite little side-story was about the shaman Malibongwe, who encounters a group of tiny, wild-eyed Northern Cape goats on a tray, rafting their way to Cape Town in search of "the heady vibrant nightlife of the city". Peter Merrington's writing is both funny and engagingly strange.
