Sunnyside Sal is the story of an unusual friendship between two boys growing up in Pretoria, South Africa. It's a jauntily narrated novella set in the tumultuous early 1990s, when a whole generation was discovering that everything they'd been taught to believe was wrong. Fuelled by his reckless bravado and post-punk philosophy, Sal plunges into extreme situations, but his innocent experimentations in rebellion lead him increasingly into hazardous realms. Although ultimately a tragic tale, Sunnyside Sal is borne up throughout by an exuberant humor.
