"The Restless Supermarket" feeds some of the most complex and crucial years of South African history through an outdated word processor, an entirely unsuitable narrator who clings to the sanctuary of the Café Europa. Behind a narrative pattern that is by turns witty, sardonic and sad, we see Tearle bungle a love affair, estrange old friends and fail epically to understand the changing society that he is a reluctant part of. The result is a novel widely regarded as one of the major books of South Africa’s transition.
