Billy’s dragon tattoo will attract strange looks in the Karoo town his family now calls home. It’s difficult to blend in when your father’s the new police colonel and your mother’s strung out on pills and wine. Before Billy meets Suzan, who makes him dream in a sideways world, the gangster Ou Joe’s roadside brothel provides strange comfort to truckers and curious youths alike. Ou Joe plans to leave a legacy before staging his final showdown with the cancer growing in his belly. After a brutal night, the colonel sets Ou Joe’s place in his sights and Billy must take a stand when good and evil are yet to pick sides. In the style of a modern western, Johan Vlok Louw’s novel is filled with youth, cars and guns.The book is an uppercut to the chin, its prose as evocative as the Karoo landscape of its setting.

Immersed in rich language and vivid detail, and set against the backdrop of 1970s South Africa, Karoo Boy is the story of a young man finding his way in the midst of chaos and loss.

Waking up in a rundown house on the outskirts of a mining town, Karl at first is uncertain who or where he is. What is certain is the pistol and cash in a duffel bag, and the grey Ford, modified for “leaving places quickly, but silently”, in the garage. Over the next few days, as glimpses of his past emerge, Karl stikes up a friendship with his new neighbour, ten-year-old Henri. But Henri’s dad is a small-time drugdealer fresh from the city, and his mother weak at protecting them against the violence of his father. All is not as it seems, however, as the real connection between Henri and Karl is revealed in Johan Vlok Louw’s poignant and potent new novel.

They're psychopaths, violent offenders, drug addicts, sexual deviants and social misfits. And these are the good guys. In the notorious military camp known as The Vault, they are considered unfit to wear the South African Defence Force uniform. As part of a brutal rehabilitation programme, they become the experimental toys of a rogue psychiatrist. After a tragic accident and a clerical error, conscript Lloyd Norton finds himself thrust into this macabre world. He will never be the same again. The novel, based on the real apartheid-era camp Greefswald, not only rips open an all but forgotten chapter in a chilling history, but also tells a gripping rites-of-passage story.

Karoo is an alcoholic who can't get drunk, a loving father who can't bear to be alone with his son, a fixer of film scripts who admits that he ruins every one of them. Calamity and comedy accompany Saul on his odyssey through sex, death and showbusiness as he seeks to 'fix' both a master director's greatest film and his own broken life at the same time.

A journey into the heart of this vast region suits the explorer; those souls tired of the humdrum of city routine; those who want to discover random yet fascinating things in way out places, taking detours en route. If you are a traveller rather than a tourist, a participant rather than a spectator, you will get the most out of this guide. Yet the area is so large and diverse that it undoubtedly holds something for everyone. With highlights, interesting facts, tips and tons of contacts, written in an easy-to-read style, this is a must-read. Steve Moseley & Brent Naudé live deep in the Karoo where they have spent the past eight years writing and photographing the region. They have developed a great love and respect for its natural and historical heritage, its people and culture, all of which has nurtured in them country values and a simpler way of life. Their work has appeared in national and international magazines and newspapers. Years of travel and research throughout this region have formed the basis of this book.
