Blood kin by Ceridwen Dovey( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 726 libraries worldwide
Rarely does a debut novel attract the sweeping critical acclaim of Ceridwen Dovey's Blood Kin. Shortlisted for two prestigious awards, this tale centers around a military coup in an unnamed country, with characters who have no names or any identifying physical characteristics. Known simply as the ex-President's chef, barber, and portrait painter, these three men perform their mundane tasks and appear unaware of the atrocities of their employer's regime. But when the President is deposed, the trio are revealed as less than innocent. A deeply chilling yet sensual novel, Blood Kin illustrates Lord Acton's famous quip, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely," and marks the beginning of an illustrious literary career
Blood kin a novel by Ceridwen Dovey( Computer File )

Dovey offers a character study of three men held captive after a military coup. All linked closely with the deposed president, the portraitist longs for his pregnant wife, the chef takes solace in preparing meals for the new regime, and the barber lives with the knowledge that he'd often held a razor to the throat of the man responsible for his brothers death
Aftertaste ( visu )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
"Focuses on two [South African] wine farms where 'empowerment' projects have recently been started in response to these calls for change. The wine farm workers receive part of the profits from the sale of 'empowerment' brand wine Winds of Change. They have used this money to buy their own houses and shares in the wine farm business. On the surface, these 'empowerment' projects seem to be a radical departure from the abusive, paternalistic labor relationship between farm owners and workers that has existed for so long. But the legacy of centuries of abuse cannot be eradicated overnight."--Container
