Wanna be shocked? Offended? Froth at the mouth?

Looking for a book that will shock you? Offend you?Get you frothing at the mouth? But even so, still having the makings of an underground classic?

Then Graeme Feltham's With the Safety Off might be just for you.

The novel is set in Yeoville, Johannesburg, in the mid-1990s. Enter Fig, a copywriter with a penchant for living on the edge – staying up all night, having casual sex and snorting cocaine. Drifting from seedy clubs to grotty flats, Fig continues his aimless odyssey … until the day he falls asleep in a client presentation and is fired.

Nine months later Fig is hooked on heroin and turns to drug-dealing for survival. If his previous lifestyle skirted close to the danger zone, it’s now gloves off as he drops all pretence of respectability and descends into a world of syndicates and violence.

From now on, he’s living with the safety off.
With introductions by Luke Feltham and James de Villiers.
