‘Chameleon’ is a story about the private face behind a public image. Leigh Franklin has it all – looks, brains and a marriage to one of Cape Town’s most successful stockbrokers. Ever the perfect wife, she exchanges her own blossoming career as a forex and hedge fund trader to become the perfect mother to her adored daughter. She struggles to maintain her up-market profile as she is forced to face the consequences of both white-collar crime and an unwanted pregnancy.
Praise for Barbara Erasmus’s
“I was, quite simply, blown away by the magical quality of this book. Erasmus combines an uncompromising audit of emotion with a lyricism that she wields like a knife. This book is an absolute dream and should not be missed.” – Jen Crocker, Cape Times
Even with insects
“Seldom have I come across a book that weaves the immediate magic of this one. Beneath the surface humour are currents and depths that touch the angst or half-hidden fears of many South Africans. A truly remarkable book.” – Dr Michael Hurry, Sunday Independent.
