Harry Mac [Paperback]
Eldridge, Russell2015
Tom and Millie are friends who live in a lane on the edge of town. They rely on each other to make sense of what's going on in their lives. Harry Mac is editor of the local newspaper and is a man of silences and secrets. He knows the prime minister but they don't seem to like each other. At school, Tom waits to be back on the lane where life is more interesting: why does a black car drive past slowly every night? Who is the mysterious boy who pierces the evenings with shrieks? And what did Harry Mac mean when he wrote 'people disappear in the night'? A series of shocking discoveries will lead Tom closer to the truth, but may tear his world apart. Set against a fascinating period of South African politics, this is a beautiful coming-of-age story, in the tradition of Jasper Jones and To Kill a Mockingbird.
