HIDDEN WORK PUBLISHED AFTER DECADES
Sheila Cussons is one of South Africa’s best-known poets, a doyenne of a certain era.
A few months before Cussons passed away, her son, Jaume Saladrigas Cussons received a surprising gift from her… a manuscript she had kept to herself for decades. She expressed a keen desire that the book be published.
This was the fantasy she had written for her little brother when she was still in her teens. It was familiar to Jaume and his brother Jordi. When they were young, their mother often read the Trevor stories to them. At the time she was living in Spain with her husband and sons, and must have relived her youthful writing, set in South Africa, where she had grown up.
Now finally, the hidden manuscript can be shared. It is meant to be treasured by anyone from 8 to 108.
Beautifully illustrated with her own delicate artwork, the quaint characters in Trevor in the Land of Fantasy come to live, transporting the reader with them into a world of fantasy and imagination. This is Sheila Cussons as we have never read her before.
