Book launch: Snake by Tracey Farren
Kalk Bay Books, 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay
Thursday 27 October: 18h00 for 18h30
After being short-listed for a Sunday Times Fiction Award for her first novel, Whiplash, Tracey Farren has now published her second novel, Snake. We look forward to introducing you to the book and the author at Kalk Bay Books, when Tracey will be in conversation with fellow author, Sarah Lotz.
When the luminous stranger arrives on the farm, 12-year-old Stella is convinced that Jerry has come to heal her family. Now she tells the terrible trouble to a tabloid journalist in an effort to save the little that is left.
The stage contains a metal wash tub, a traumatised child and a hard-hearted journalist. The script veers between love and violence, shining a naked bulb on psychosis and the preposterous ways in which people express their shame. Snake is a tabloid tale told in a young girl's voice; sincere, anxious and human.
