Once it seemed to Kathleen Healey that Africa was empty and all of it belonged to her. An aviator, big-game hunter and knitting devotee, she would land her plane wherever and whenever she chose. She was free with her favours too, and her multitude of lovers came from all over the continent.

When Kathleen dies, her only son Alexander returns to Johannesburg to carry out her final wishes. But then he meets Cindy September, and Alexander must confront the final part of his mother's legacy - his capacity for love.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'My Mother's Lovers is a deceptive kind of masterpiece. It is wonderful on the matter of human belonging and tribal instinct, terrific on the whole subject of the European penetration of Africa, but most impressive of all as a panoramic evocation of the South Africa of our times.' Jan Morris 'Hope has undertaken the imaginative project of outwriting a society that, as it lives out its fantasies, ventures deeper and deeper into the theatre of cruelty, enacting a tangled, horrifying dark comedy.' J.M. Coetzee on White Boy Running"
