The Marginal Safari - Justin Fox

The Marginal Safari by Justin Fox has our author journeying counter-clockwise around the edges of South Africa, starting in Cape Town. It is 2006 and his famous father Revel has been diagnosed with cancer. Worried and guilt-ridden, he takes to the road nevertheless, making full use of the advantages that distance and the sheer physicality of driving affords a troubled soul. As he stops at places frequented or famously erected by his architect father, his thoughts congeal around notions of fatherland and fatherhood. He tarries at outposts and colourful towns, skipping entire cities at times to favour the off-beat treasures of human souls fashioned less by convention than by their own sheer will pitted against nature or circumstance.
