Blood kin by Ceridwen Dovey( Book )
30 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 720 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

Dovey offers a character study of three men held captive after a military coup.

Aftertaste ( visu )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 181 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

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
There has been a change of regime in a place with very different co-ordinates to the real world, and the President and his intimates - his chef, barber and portraitist - are being held accountable for their complicity by the new Commander. Each man in turn speaks of his appetites, the physical, the tactile, the hurt done by him and to him, detailing the intimacies of his particular embodied life. The significant woman in each man's life gives voice to the minutiae of pain, balancing melancholy, farce and horror, until all characters' voices elide in a whirlpool of personal and public reckoning, memory and desire
