Multiple award-winning author Elsa Joubert’s memoir about life after the death of her beloved husband. Moving into an upmarket retirement home in Cape Town, she has to come to terms with the loss of independence, friends who die and with the changes in her memory and body. Rarely, if ever, has there been such an honest representation of aging in South Africa. Filled with compassion, wisdom and an unfailing touch of humour, Cul-de-Sac invites readers to introspection about their own lives.

This is a book that leaves no reader untouched, as shown by the phenomenal success of Spertyd, the original Afrikaans text. Seldom has childhood been relived with such clarity, seldom have the humiliations of old age been so nakedly laid open. A moving farewell from one of our great writers.-- JM Coetzee

An exceptionally honest and poignant account of a life lived to the limits. -- Rapport.
