Here is the story of Mary and the Girls, of Zoot, Pretty-Boy and Oubaas, of the Abrahams family who came from Bo-Kaap, of Last-Knight the Barber and his prim wife. This novel is written in tribute to the people of District Six so that we do not forget.

'Buckingham Palace' is a dingy row of five houses in the heart of District Six, a notorious slum area at the foot of Table Mountain overlooking Cape Town. In this lively novel Richard Rive traces the close community through its moments of triumph and despair, its loves, its hatreds - and its bizarre characters.

The school edition of Richard Rive's classic story includes an accessible and stimulating introduction by Robin Malan, as well as notes on the book and points for discussion.


Very Good (VG): I may show some small signs of wear - but no tears - on either binding or paper.
