Young Jewish émigré Isaac Helger lives with his mother in the inner city of Johannesburg, amidst a near-cacophony of languages: Yiddish, Afrikaans, English, Zulu. As the de facto breadwinner of his family, Isaac faces an intimidating challenge: How can he manage to rescue all their cousins and nephews from Lithuania before Hitler can get his hands on them? Kenneth Bonert's debut novel The Lion Seeker takes us into the mind and life of a scheming high school dropout gaining insights and struggling with choices in the unforgiving crucible of history.
