Proctor is a South African who has lived abroad for decades. She worked in the world of film and TV until her debut novel Rhumba a few years ago. It was set in the Congolese immigrant community in London, and traced the story of boy searching for his lost mother - a deeply affecting and unusual story of family lost and found which lingered for months after I had read it. Her latest, The Savage Hour, is an intense and beautifully written work of South African literature.
