An Evening with Mike Nicol
Mike Nicol is a journalist and writer, a denizen of Cape Town’s peninsular city. He teaches a course at the Centre for Creative Writing at the University of Cape Town and has been a writer-in-residence both at UCT and the University of Essen, Germany. In 1997 he was a recipient of a German Academic Exchange Service’s Artists-in-Berlin grant. Mike also works occasionally as an editor.
Although his crime novels are set in his home town, he has a soft spot for Johannesburg and everything in between, particularly the dry reaches of the Karoo, that strange heart of the country.
Following the publication of Payback in 2008, the second book in the Revenge Trilogy featuring Mace and Pylon, Killer Country, is now available.
Mike will be in conversation with our very own Mervyn Sloman, and we will have a copy each of Payback and Killer Country to give to one lucky Lounger on the night.
