Join Justin Fox for the launch of his gripping new book Place: South African Literary Journeys (8 Nov)
 More about the book!

Penguin Random House and Love Books invite you to the launch of Place: South African Literary Journeys by Justin Fox.

Fox will be chatting to Shaun de Waal about his absolutely marvellous new book.

Marrying his love for travel and writing, Fox sets off to explore the places of his favourite books. From the mountainous eastern Karoo of Olive Schreiner to the big game lowveld of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, to JM Coetzee’s Moordenaar’s Karoo, the subtropical hamlets of Zakes Mda’s Wild Coast, and much more, Fox brings to life the settings most of us have only seen through character’s eyes.

Place is a moving love letter to South Africa, merging literature and landscape, and taking the reader on a breathtaking journey into the heart of South Africa’s spectacular landscape and the inner worlds of its most celebrated authors.
