Leaving Word Steven Boykey Sidley

  • R 24000

One of South Africa?s most celebrated literary fiction writers has taken a detour into death, mystery and crime. Steven Boykey Sidley, award-winning, multi-shortlisted and internationally published author, has written a startling new work, which will hit the shelves in September.

Leaving Word is a literary mystery in which the mysterious death of Buddy Rappaport, the CEO of a major publishing company, sets off a probing, occasionally comic, occasionally tragic and intellectually wide-ranging search for plot, meaning, reason and motive.

Heroine and protagonist Joelle Jesson, the 40-year-old senior editor of the publishing house, although having been fired by the CEO only hours before his death, is determined to find out what happened. She is smart, confused, sexy, sassy, lonely, ambitious and determined ? an explosive and memorable character on the page.
