Crooked Seeds

Karen Jennings

In a Cape Town where water is rationed and the consequences of apartheid and the ending of it are still evident, Deidre lives from day to day in squalor, testing the tolerance and pity of everyone she knows. One day she is contacted by the police and taken by a respectful constable to the house where she grew up and where she lost her leg in a shattering explosion.

Karen Jennings’s last novel An Island was longlisted for the Booker Prize.
