Description: Pawpaw Vir My Darling is a story filled with humor, pathos and razor-sharp social commentary on the life of a white (sic) Afrikaans family and their mongrel dog in a down-at-heel suburb. The central theme deals with their desperate, sometimes clumsy and strange attempts to adapt and survive the “post 1994” era. Included is the individual family members' struggle to come to terms with themselves and their circumstances and maintain peace amongst each other, their neighbours and the authorities.Through the eyes of the Beeslaer family's dog Tsjaka, one follows the struggle to adapt and accept the ever present hope of a better life. One gains intimate insight into characters and situations and experiences the ‘sweet and the sour', the brief moments of hope, excitement and pleasure. Also, one accesses the constant desperation and hopelessness of dog and human, caught in an economic and socially challenging environment.
