"I was born on the banks of the Amazon River and raised by a Kaiapo wet-nurse while my mother conducted medical research and taught the Kaiapo children how to play the violin. After growing up with these rain forest natives and a long bout of malaria, I went on to get my degree in rocket science at the University of Uganda (U of U). To
this day, I have not gotten a rocket off the ground. Presently, I’m trying to raise money
to return to the Amazon to show gratitude to my surrogate mother, whom I’ve not seen in all these years. She always wanted a car hood to use as an awning over the door to her hut. I finally found one, on a 1973 Cadillac in a wrecking yard on a two-lane highway just south of Knoxville, Tennessee. Today, I take great satisfaction in
spending time with my wife, in writing, and in telling lies."

Martin Brant sure knows how to put a good story together, and he's done it again in Copperas Cove. With the main character, Jonathan Scott, challenging his inner urges, readers are also left with a few challenges...be they where we all stand in the full spectrum of human sexuality or our attitude to racial discrimination.
Set in the USA deep south in the mid-nineteen-fifties, the tale is gripping/surprising/enlightening, and a whole lot of other "ings" which all amount to fascinating, and damn good reading.
One hopes that Martin can keep going with more of his stories, and I for one wait with eager anticipation. Douglas Gellatly.
