 More about the book!

Penguin Random House invites you to the launch of Too Many Tsunamis: A Tale of Love, Light and Incidental Humour by Vincent Pienaar.

About the book

Life’s a drag, and nobody knows that better than Bert. Bert wants to write. He also wants to kill himself.

He has composed a brilliant suicide note, but so far his attempt at a brilliant suicide is as devoid of success as his writing career. Not wanting to die wondering if his mother will fully comprehend his note, Bert sets out to explain himself – in a footnote. A footnote that keeps growing and growing like a monster wave.

Bert carries on living, for now, recounting his string of doomed relationships, and bemoaning his dead-end job in a printing shop, and the fact that he’s 34 and still living with his mother.

But into the shop walks the mysterious Lelani Balt – Lightning Bolt – and sparks begin to fly. Bert might finally have something to write about.
