Adrian de Villiers is driving back to Cape Town after a traumatic event that took place on his parents' farm in the Free State. In trying to make sense of it he relives his past and the reader meets a series of bizarre characters: a truck driver who suffers from epilepsy during which visions of the Mother Mary are visited upon him, the Baking Queen of the Free State who tries to save six asparagus quiches but kills herself and ten schoolchildren in the process, and aunty Baby Bothma, who fled her home town only to find solace in the arms of a Polish count and his wife. Fast Forward from Schoonwater explores the process of growing up in the tumultuous last half of the twentieth century, coming to terms with a crime-ridden present and facing an uncertain future. It's the story of an ordinary South African who stumbles his way through extraordinary times. Finally, it's a story of promise as past and present come together to allow for a new and more hopeful beginning.
