Description

Zinzi December has a Sloth on her back, a dirty 419 scam habit, and a talent for finding lost things. But when a little old lady turns up dead and the cops confiscate her last paycheck, she's forced to take on her least favourite kind of job: missing persons.

In "Zoo City" we have an unfamiliar land full of familiars, a broken city of the near-future peopled with damaged wonders. Lauren Beukes is a marksman in a world of drunken machine-gunners. Bill (Fables) Willingham




About the Author
Lauren Beukes is a writer, TV scriptwriter and recovering journalist (although she occasionally falls off the wagon). She has an MA in Creative Writing, but she got her real education in ten years of freelance journalism, learning really useful skills like how to pole-dance and make traditional sorghum beer. For the sake of a story, she s jumped out of planes and into shark-infested waters and got to hang out with teen vampires, township vigilantes, AIDS activists and homeless sex workers among other interesting folk. When she s not tutoring her baby daughter (aka the queen of eeeeeeevil) in practical ways to take over the world, she also writes books, short stories, magazine articles and TV scripts various.

Justine Eyre is a classically trained actress who has narrated over two hundred audiobooks. With a prestigious Audie Award and four "AudioFile" Earphones Awards under her belt, Justine is multilingual and is known for her great facility with accents. Her recent television credits include "Two and a Half Men" and "Mad Men".
