“When life turns as black as the Earl of Hell’s waistcoat, you don’t want a man who’s all bum and parsley.”
The Boy Who Could Keep a Swan in his Head, the new novel by award-winning playwright, author and creative director John Hunt, is out in April from Umuzi.
Hunt is the author of the novel The Space Between the Space Between, and his book The Art of the Idea, which celebrates the power of ideas to move the world forward, has been translated into several languages. He is currently Worldwide Creative Chair of advertising agency network TBWA, having previously co-founded TBWA\Hunt Lascaris. He grew up in Hillbrow and still lives and works in Johannesburg.
The Boy Who Could Keep a Swan in his Head will be launched on 18 April, 2018, at the Circa Gallery in Johannesburg. Hunt will be in conversation with Harry Kalmer.
