Or You Could Kiss Me

Neil Bartlett

PaperBack (05 Oct 2010)

In the winter of 2036, in a shabby apartment in Port Elizabeth, two old men search for a way to say goodbye after a lifetime spent together. In the perfect summer of 1971, in a very different South Africa, their handsome younger selves search for the courage to fall in love. And poised halfway between these two stories – one imagined, one remembered – their real-life counterparts bear witness to both the beginning and ending of an incredible journey.

Neil Bartlett returns to The National in collaboration with the award winning War Horse team to create an intimate history of two very private lives, lived in extraordinary times.
