"An exquisite tale about the end of boyhood and the burning away of innocence while a country is set alight by powers shedding all pretence of human decency. With an unexpectedly romantic eloquence and lyrical language unique to Salt River and its sibling communities in 1960s Western Cape, Kagee tells a touching story of four beautiful boys blighted by history and circumstance." Karabo Kgoleng, broadcaster
