 REVIEW 

"Simply amazing. This book misled the hell out of me...The author is subtle enough to allow the story to flow while just under the surface of the tale tragedy, awareness, hopelessness and hope are surrounding you. Many social, ethical and political issues are tackled effortlessly in this story. Racism, brutality, loyalty, corruption, youth, love and naiveté. I was engrossed from page one and am entirely grateful for the experience." - novelopinion.org (5/5 stars) 

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The year is 1988.

Eighteen-year-old Thomas Green, weed smoker and would-be artist, has been plucked from his comfortable, suburban existence in apartheid South Africa and thrown onto the frontline of his country’s war against what it sees as terrorism.

As a conscript in the South African Defence Force, it’s Thomas’s job to watch the hot, sandy border for signs of the mysterious ‘red menace’.

There are no bars nearby, no art galleries, no cinemas and no air-conditioned shopping malls. Worst of all, there are no lithe young ladies willing to pose nude for an eager painter-in-training. What Thomas has found in plentiful supply are sand dunes, barbwire fences and landmines. He may as well have landed in hell.

When a man approaches on foot from Angola, the place where the terrorists are said to come from, Thomas discovers that life can still get a whole lot worse.

MiG-23 Broke my Heart is a war novel, a tale of action and adventure, a fictional road trip and – deep in its dark heart – a certain kind of love story.

Please be advised that the novel contains violence, hard-biting humour and sensitive subject matter that some readers may find disturbing. 

This is a full-length novel, which in paperback form would be about two hundred and fifty pages.
