About the book: 
“You don’t notice your nose much, but when it changes direction, it does get your attention.”
Jethro ricochets through life with little to help him along the way other than his ability to bounce.
His best friend tries to lend a hand, as does the therapist he sees after burglars break into his house and, among other things, demand he makes them coffee. Jethro’s wry story gradually reveals why he carries his girlfriend’s hat and shoe everywhere he goes.
Days seem dark for Jethro until an eleven-year-old girl unexpectedly supplies a light. It’s up to him to work out where to shine it.
Set in contemporary South Africa, John Hunt’s wise and compelling novel contemplates loss and healing, and our efforts to make sense of our lives and those who fill them.
