Marabou Stork Nightmares, Paperback / softback Book

Marabou Stork Nightmares Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Roy Strang is engaged in a strange quest in a surrealist South Africa.

His mission is to eradicate an evil predator-scavenger bird, the marabou stork, before it drives away the peace-loving flamingo from the picturesque Lake Torto.

But behind this world lies another: the world of Roy's bizarre family, the Scottish housing scheme in which he grew up, his mundane job, a disastrous emigration to Africa, and his youthful life of brutality with a gang of soccer casuals.

As one world crashes into the other, this potentially charming story of ornithological goodwill mutates into a filthy tale of violence, abuse and redemption.
