Call it Dog | [Marli Roode]

Call it Dog

Jo returns to South Africa after ten years in the UK to cover the riots sweeping the Jo’burg township of Alex. Nico, her estranged Afrikaner father, reappears and asks her to help prove his innocence in the murder of a black man, abducted by the security forces decades earlier. As they set off on a road trip through South Africa’s now-unfamiliar landscape, it becomes clear that Nico knows more about the murder than he is letting on, and Jo begins to wonder whether she is his accomplice, or his captive.

Publisher's Summary

Jo returns to South Africa after ten years in the UK to cover the riots sweeping the Jo'burg township of Alex. Nico, her estranged Afrikaner father, reappears and asks her to help prove his innocence in the murder of a black man, abducted by the security forces decades earlier. As they set off on a road trip through South Africa's now-unfamiliar landscape, it becomes clear that Nico knows more about the murder than he is letting on, and Jo begins to wonder whether she is his accomplice, or his captive.

Call it Dog asks whether justice and truth are more important than the bonds of loyalty and love, and explores what is it like to feel you no longer belong in the land of your birth - or to your own family.

What the Critics Say

"A superbly written, intelligent, and powerful debut. Marli Roode is the real thing, and she's here to stay." (M.J. Hyland)

"Gripping ...A sharp and chilling debut." (Patrick Flanery)

"Marli Roode takes a roller-coaster ride through the new South Africa, where the old demons don't retire, they merely reload, and nothing is quite what it seems. Call it Dog calls it like it is - a blistering debut." (Christopher Hope)
