Bitter Fruit

by Achmat Dangor - £7.99  Atlantic Books (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843542643 | ISBN 10: 1843542641

The last time Silas Ali encountered the Lieutenant, Silas was locked in the back of a police van and the Lieutenant was conducting a vicious assault on Lydia, his wife. When Silas sees him again, by chance, crimes from the past erupt into the present, splintering the Ali's fragile family life.
Bitter Fruit is the story of Silas, Mikey and Lydia, a brittle family in a dysfuntional society. By turns harrowing, erotic and fearlessly satirical, it is a portrait of modern South Africa that also addresses questions of universal significance.
