The land is South Africa where all too often people have been dispossessed by imperious government decree - never more disgracefully that in the Native Lands Act of 1913. Sometimes the beleaguered people have fought back, inspired by leaders with a purpose to reclaim justice.
Such a zealot is Enoch Mistas, the 'Redeemer' of Mike Nicol's narrative - a tall imposing presence of landscape with a Bible chained to his wrist and the day of judgment on his lips. He is the scourge of the country's president, his rise foretold by an oracle, his specter stalking the halls of government while his influence grows in the hinterland.
With humour and vision, Mike Nicol examines the power of history and the plight of those who have been carried helplessly in its wake.
