Kwela Book Chat: The Man Who Loved Crocodile Tamers by Finuala Dowling with John Maytham NB Publishers

    • Arts

In this episode of the NB Publishers Podcast we hear John Maytham in conversation with Finuala Dowling about her new novel, The Man Who Loved Crocodile Tamers. The interview was recorded at the book launch at Exclusive Books, V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

More about the book:
Gina knows hardly anything about her father apart from the fact that he was once engaged to Koringa, a crocodile tamer, and that he is buried in an unmarked grave. In between shifts at a call centre, with Doubt always looking over her shoulder, she works on a novel about him, ultimately drawing back the curtain on a complex, sad but also funny and enchanting life.
The Man Who Loved Crocodile Tamers is a story about love, family, fear and the banishing of fear: a celebration of strong women and a defence of a ‘nervous’ man.
