Hemispheres (a sequel to Mallaig Road, published January 2022) charts the story of Alexander Maclean’s adult life, and spans a period of more than forty years, from 1976 to 2021.
Alexander, born in British colonial Africa and brought up in the South Africa of the 1960s, spends half a lifetime striving to flee his demons. Ever restless, he travels back and forth between South Africa, the United Kingdom, Europe and the Far East, as he battles to escape the grip of alcoholism. In the process, however, Alexander has some extraordinary adventures, and several near miraculous escapes from death.
This contemporary morality tale is above all the story of Alexander’s triumph over alcoholism, and of his deliverance from his demons. In a land far from Africa, Alexander at last finds enduring peace, love and contentment.
