It was not the patter of a garden sprinkler on a lawn or the spurt of a hose in a bucket, the usual suburban backdrop to his Saturday mornings inst a shore

It was not the patter of a garden sprinkler on a lawn or the spurt of a hose in a bucket, the usual suburban backdrop to his Saturday mornings inst a shore. But it began as abruptly as if an enormous tap had been opened wide. He clenched his fists beneath the blankets and held his breath, listening, expecting the worst. He thought he heard people crying out, footsteps pounding on his stoep, the rasping of rushes against the hull of a wicker basket. After a while, he stuck out his head and looked around

The Restless Supermarket book. His books include The Folly, The Restless Supermarket, Portrait with Keys and Double Negative.

Shoppers from the supermarket on the next corner, drinkers from the verandah of the Chelsea Hotel across the way, the twilight children, drawn out in broad daylight by the spectacle, a couple of continental gentlemen in open-neck shirts. As representative a cross-section of conurbanites as you could wish to find.

The Restless Supermarket. It is 1993, and Aubrey Tearle's world is shutting down. He has recently retired from a lifetime of proofreading telephone directories. His favourite neighbourhood haunt in Johannesburg, the Café Europa, is about to close its doors; the familiar old South Africa has almost vanished. Standards, he grumbles, are in decline, so bad-tempered, conservative Tearle embarks on a grandiose plan to enlighten his fellow citizens. The results are disastrous, hilarious and poignant. 2006) A novel by Ivan Vladislavić.

Novel set in Hillbrow during years of apartheids demise

Comments:

Crazy
This is an excellence narrative story telling of what it means to be an ordinary johanesburger. How loves are written into the fabric of the city, and musings about the transition between apartheid and democratic South Africa. As it is enacted upon the city of Johannesburg post 1994
Lightseeker
A bleakly amusing look at South Africa's transition to democracy in the early 1990s. Surreal, and takes place in the same suburb of Johannesburg as Lauren Beukes' Zoo City, which is set some 20 years later. Interesting to read both and observe the differences.
Dori
This is not an easy to book to read. However, if one does make it through the story, he or she will be greatly rewarded with a quirky story amidst a politically thrilling time period. It helped to evoke with Hillbrow must have been like as South Africa transitioned to democracy.
