Overview

Nicholas Van der Swart has always been different. Diffident and introverted as a child, he learns as a young man that remaining true to oneself, however hard it may be, is an undertaking worth risking one's life for. When, at the age of 19, he is conscripted into the South African army, he enters a world that is utterly at odds with his every sensibility and his hard-won personal fortitude will be put to the ultimate test.

Set during the Angola Bush War that raged from 1966 to 1989 in South-west Africa, Moffie transports the reader into the world of a young gay conscript with evocative realism. At turns heart wrenching and humorous, told with great sensitivity and infused with hope, Moffie is the inspiring story of a remarkable man whose tenacity and inner strength are pitted against a system that attempts to annihilate all traces of individuality.
