Pierre is fourteen years old. His mother is dead. His little brother’s back home in Brussels, in the African quarter. His grandmother Missy’s there too, nursing a stack of voodoo recipes and the means to cast a long-distance hex. So how come Pierre’s still stuck in a flat in Camden with the white man he’s not quite comfortable calling Dad?
Ashley Cochrane is an English teacher. He’s lived abroad too, met a few people, done a few things. He can handle a little squirt like Pierre and his mates. No problem.
Kilburn Hoodoo is a wickedly funny, multi-cultural, modern day tragi-comedy about blame, guilt and vengeance.
