This was well written although I felt like this novel could have been two books one a memoir of a childhood in South Africa and one about Karl s sexual awakening I found The Smell of Apples fascinating so was looking forward to Embrace although the length put me off for a while I enjoyed reading a novel set in areas familiar to me growing up Maritzburg Matubatuba Mfolozi Charters St Lucia etc This novel gives an interesting account of what it was like to grow up in South Africa in the seventies I identified with the language and references and I reminisced over my own childhood as I read Having schooled at Epworth Primary in Maritzburg in the seventies I came into contact with some of the cast from the Drakensberg Boys Choir who performed in Oliver around the mid seventies I couldn t help wondering who Behr s characters were based on My father was also involved in Save the Rhino as a vet The caning was brutal at boys schools and my own brothers came home bloodied many times during their school careers Totally barbaric and as a teacher for over 25 years I know it is completely unnecessary I do wonder how much boys experimented sexually in boarding schools and how much grooming went on there from teachers or older students The prejudice apparent between black and white and Afrikaner and English must be uite an eye opener for non South Africans The white snobbery was also cringeworthy

mentioned not only childhood experieves that were similar to mine but also people whom I had met The schools of Ba'athism A study of Syrian schoolbooks in real life though not as a child At one point

another occasion and I remember my knee being bruised and swollen though not so that I needed stitchesThere were also considerable differences however Mark Behr describes the racist and white supremacist views of many of the pupils and teachers at the Drakensberg Boys Choir School Greek Tragedy in the 1970s It was a private fee paying school and therefore under no obligations to give the National Party Angelophany indoctrination that went on The Scorpio Races in government schools but apparently The Scorpio Races it did When I was the protagonist s age I attended St Stithian s College The poetry of Machado de Assis Albatros Hispanofila in the 1950s and I don t recall such racist attitudes among the teachers at all and relatively rarely among the pupils Another thing that struck me which has nothing to do with the content was that the publishers Abacus had obviously paid no heed to the adage Putt knot yore trussed Poesia Completa y Cinco Poemas Ineditos in spell cheuers The book really could have made use of a human editor but was apparently produced by an el cheapo publisher who tried to save money by dispensing with their services and relying on a semi literate typist using a spelling checker Among the numerous errors were Poesia Completa y Cinco Poemas Ineditos in cohort with where The Love of Her Life in cahoots with was obviously Heir to Scandal intended and pallet
