In the fetid depths of a Jamaican prison, the half-caste bastard son of an eighteenth-century Jamaican sugar planter is turned into a zombie and banished to the diamond-hungry colonies of the Cape. Thwarted by an unrequited love he unleashes a dire curse, which reverberates across the continents and generations. From the imagination of Peter Merrington, author of Zebra Crossings: Tales from the Shaman's Record, comes an eclectic tale, woven with folklore, fairy tale and magic, that draws urban shaman Malibongwe Ngingingini and his beloved apprentice, Anna Persens, into a quest to heal their land of the zombie's curse: a foul emanation of fog and narcolepsy. The Zombie's curse affects two family dynasties on either side of the Atlantic. Guided by Maria Juanita – the shape-shifting Sister Moon – Malibongwe and Anna's journey takes them from Cape Town to Great Bushmanland, and on to the mystical deserts of New Mexico and the voodoo-fuelled New Orleans, where Lord Tantamount, the Zombie Prince, haunts the highways. The Zombie and the Moon is a blend of real social issues and deep spiritual symbolism that includes a fanciful exploration of astral travel, the role of the ancestors, animist earth spirits, utopian visions, quotidian squalor, social injustice and an aged goat.
