South African Author Publishes New Book
Shades of Grey, a new book by Neville Naidoo, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Life: that most ancient battle between the best a man can be and the very lowest he can sink.

How does an eighteen-year-old answer when the depths of his depravity call so loudly and the whisper of his goodness is a barely audible voice to his conscious? A young man looking to break the shackles of his menial life initially finds acceptance and escape in the sordid world of drugs. What follows is a harrowing journey to the darkest parts of his tormented soul.

What happens when light and dark no longer have meaning? Which way is right and good when all is gray? These are the questions he must answer as he naïvely wanders into the soul-eating world of drugs with reckless abandon. All the while he fights for acceptance, both as an academic and a street-hustler. His battle ultimately culminates in a choice between the girl he loves and the exhilarating thrill of a life that could kill him if he lets it.

About the Author
