One Young Fool in South Africa
JOE AND VICTORIA TWEAD

Who is Joe Twead? Where did he come from? What happened before Joe met Victoria and they moved to a crazy Spanish mountain village together?
Joe Twead’s early life in South Africa was very different to Victoria’s in leafy Dorset. Sad, dark, funny, yet often magical, Joe vividly paints his childhood memories despite being heckled by Victoria at his elbow as he writes.
