JimfishVerdict: carrot

Hope is a renowned South African literary export. He has more than 20 publications ranging from literary fiction, poetry, plays, non-fiction and more. Most of his novels are based in apartheid South Africa. In Jimfish, however, he lets his protagonist travel.

The novel is an epic tale that sees Jimfish embark on a journey across Zimbabwe, Uganda and Siberia. He witnesses the fall of the Berlin Wall, travels to Zaire and Somalia, and even sees the Liberian civil war.
