Due South of Copenhagen, the new novel from Mark Winkler, will be out from Umuzi in April!
Due South of Copenhagen is described as ‘a masterful tale of the scope of intimate connections between people, small-town living during the height of the Border War, and what it takes to put the past to rest’.
‘Tender, devastating. Winkler’s portrait of cauterised lives is masterly.’ – Michele Magwood
