About the Author
Derek was born in Johannesburg and is surprised to find himself still living there. He put off going to University by a series of misadventures, one of which was backpacking through Europe. Taking this overly literally resulted in staying in the house of a smuggler, sleeping rough in cities and forests and taking on dangerous jobs – all of which informed this book. Later on his journalism career was saved by the Internet and he is now a publisher at a large media house.
About the Book
A Partisan Art.
Europe, 1994. Not the Cold War, not the Millenium. Not the recession, not the tech boom. Not waiting, not knowing. The besieged anti-roads movement in London is as its zenith as is the lethal smuggling in the new Czech Republic. These worlds in the margins will collide in the only reality available – Sarajevo and the hills of Bosnia where patience has just run out.
