Shelley's Reviews > Cokcraco
Aug 31, 2013
Cokcraco is a brilliantly witty mystery set in South Africa. Naive Australian academic Timothy Turner sets off on a quest to find the mysterious African writer (the Greatest African Writer of All Times) Sizwe Bantu, who has never been seen in person, but whose works have attracted a cult following, especially his world-famous 'cockroach stories.' His stunning works (Bantu's that is) pepper the novel throughout, so that the reader is lead on a multi-layered literary journey which is at once serious and playful, and which invites us to contemplate the nature of creativity and inspiration. This is a novel to be read again and again...and again.
