breathing
Breathing Space, Penguin, 2000

It is 1985 and on South Africa's beautiful West Coast, ten friends get together – a chance to escape, a moment's breathing space, but the weekend strikes sparks that will smoulder for years to come...

Breathing Space follows these friends as they change and grow over ten years, making love and fighting, celebrating and mourning, against the turbulent political backdrop of their homeland. Rich, moving and sexy, this has become a cult novel in South Africa, and leaves you feeling as if your own circle of friends has suddenly grown.
