The Velocity of Falling Bodies
A deftly written novel in verse which follows the trail of a vagabond before and after he meets a young woman embarked on a campaign of anarchy against the State which, by way of its apartheid policies, has foredone most of her family and friends. The story examines the moral perspective of anarchy as it follows the protagonist's balancing act through various ethical and existential dilemmas as he tries to convince the young woman to give up her fight and escape to the coast with him.
