You Never Really Know (Paperback)


One lowly barista. One coffee-drinking dictator. John Hunt’s playful and damning satire on political power Meet our hero Cappuccino – barista to the President – who’s never lived anywhere other than in the big man’s compound. Left in the care of Maria-I’m-not-your-mother when his real mom died, Cappuccino spent his boyhood in the laundry room before receiving his true calling.

From behind his impressive chrome coffee machine, Cappuccino is a fly on a very important wall. And, more importantly, he is in love with the captivating Naomi, an assistant to the President.

But life is about to serve Cappuccino a bitter cup when he finds the Minister without Portfolio – and moral compass to The Boss – dead in the presidential home.

Filled with warm humour, John Hunt’s novel serves up a double shot of pathos as it moves from playful satire to true tragedy whilst examining the inner workings of power.
