Cover revealed for Fred Strydom’s new novel The Inside-Out Man – a jazzy and surreal mind-bender
 More about the book!

We are thrilled to reveal the cover of The Inside-Out Man by renowned South African author Fred Strydom, which will release in May this year through Umuzi.

Brilliant jazz pianist Bent lives from gig to gig in a city of dead ends. He is plagued by fragmented visions of the past, and has resigned himself to a life of quiet desolation. That is, until the night he meets wealthy and eccentric jazz fan Leonard Fry.

In the days that follow, Leonard makes Bent a devilish deal, proposing a bizarre experiment in which Bent will play a vital part.

The deal provides an opportunity for Bent to start afresh, to question everything he knows, and for the two men to move beyond the one terrifying frontier from which neither of them can be sure they’ll ever return: the borders of their own sanity.

The Inside-Out Man is a jazzy and surreal mind-bender of a book.
