The Transkei Run

WIN ONE of FIVE signed copies of The Transkei Run by Michael Taljaard! 

On a painfully hung-over Saturday morning two incorrigible small town scallywags, Jeremy “Spikes” Vorster and his impulsive but charismatic sidekick, Zachary Post, decide to flee their previous night’s regrets and the repercussions thereof in search of adventure in the rural Transkei. 
A run-in with a local taxi gang sets in motion a series of events that unravel a tense and violent misadventure as the two young rebels are forced to defend themselves at all cost. What results is a gritty, uniquely South African undertaking, complete with sex, drugs and boerewors rolls, spiralling into complete and utter anarchy. 
"It'll have you smiling while it hammers you with gut punches." - Charlie Human, author of Apocalypse Now Now.
