Book Description

The story takes place in South Africa and India.

In South Africa, the narrator, Paul, drifts between an ideal world, where he is happily married to his partner Nirraz, and a dark and horrible nightmare where an unidentified madman is torturing him in the gay couple's own wine cellar.

Nirraz is a sociologist and his lover Paul teaches biology at the local school. The couple have the special ability to experience the same grotesque dreams - they recite their ten dreams to a psychologist.

The couple are friends with their neighbour Sheila, a dovorcee, her boyfriend Peter and her son Liam, who gets close to the gay couple. There is lots of goings on in the jacuzzi of the gay couple's home and an atmosphere of sexual jealously arises.

The madman's life and the ten dreams are connected to a remote village in India where an eighty-year-old hermaphrodite virgin, Shamele, is responsible for creating dream pills. The pills allow one to dream of one's death and one's reincarnation.

A yellow butterfly carved out of a stone taken from the mountain near the village is believed to be cursed and was sold to a South African tourist - the yellow butterfly became an integral part of the madman's childhood.

Paul's happy world starts crumbling as terrible events take place in his hometown. His ideal world merges with his nightmare in the cellar and a macarbe twist at the end plunges him into a dark world where the fates of the torturer and his helpless victim are finally decided.

This book is not for the feint hearted.

    4.5 starsThanks to EUROBOOK and my winning this book, I was able to get an advanced look into Paul Winter's newest book Twin Scorpions. Having been very much spooked by his Twin Scorpions, I was quite happy to once again enter the world of "spookdom" and read this story. Teenagers are quite impressionable. They often believe a lot of things and try to grab onto concepts and ideas that at times seems quite out of the norm. They often make ready partners, easily led, and make decisions that oftenti.

    A short but w lovely book for fans of both authors, but also a lot of insight into freedom of speach, creativity and the importance of libraries. Some words to take to heart, some words to live by, some words to get (more) liberated in the pursuit of artistic endeavours. Definitely a good thing to read. You don't know it yet, but it's likely you need this book.

    I'm pretty sure Paul Winter books just exist to capture and devour your entire SOUL AND IMAGINATION. I just went on such a wild adventure omg, I feel actually drained. Like this duology has totally filled my creative well. I am heart eyes and my heart so so full and !!!! my emotions are just !!! which is exactly how a professionally reviewer would summarise a book.

    I know a lot of us were expecting Twin Scorpions to be good, but I have to say, this book actually exceeded my expectations. I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it. I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but, at one point, I opened Notes on my computer just to type "oh fucking god, this is so good".
