Our friend Steven “Boykey” Sidley has a new book out. You may remember Boykey’s last book, Free Association, which featured in a podcast Carel did with the author in 2017. The novel was also included on Colin’s reading list that year.

The new book is called Leaving Word. It launches in Joburg next Wednesday, 11 September, and in Cape Town a little over two weeks later, on Thursday, 26 September.  

“I would love to see friends of CN&CO at either of the launches,” says Boykey. “Come and enjoy some food and drink in the company of Mandla Langa (Joburg) and Mark Winkler (Cape Town) – and if all goes according to plan, scads of interesting people!”

“It is also my publisher Melinda Ferguson’s celebration of her 40th book under her imprint MF Books/Jacana, so – a double celebration,” says Boykey.
