Get your Durban Poison here!

I promised that my new book would be available on my website and, lo, it has come to pass. Praise be.

I’m happy to devalue your copy by scribbling something in it. If you want it inscribed to someone other than yourself, supply the name in the box marked Order Notes.

There is limited stock available. Seriously. I am not just saying that to sell more books. I’m not like the others. Also, given the reputation of the Post Office, early orders are advisable unless you want to get it in time for Christmas 2020.

PDFs of my other titles are also available. Just click on Contraband.

    Hello Ben ..
    Where can I get a copy or 6 of your book? I’m in the Garden Route- no Exclusives here.. do Wordsworth or Bargain Books stock it?
    Alternatively, I don’t mind paying courier ..
    thanks, sylvie

      Hi Sylvie. You should be able to order copies through Wordsworth, but it would be cheaper if you ordered through Takealot. Here’s the link:

    Ben the widget wotsit above that should allow us to order your book is borked:

    Oops! That embed can’t be found.

    It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try visiting BEN TROVATO directly?

      Hi Warwick. I stopped selling via my site because the Post Office was proving too unreliable with deliveries. And it would have pushed up the price too much if I used couriers.

        Ok I will look in bookshops. I’m in Salt Rock.

    Dear Ben,

    I got my copy of Durban Poison from Exclusive Books at Menlyn a week ago. I planned to finish reading it in one sitting, but the boss of the Gumede household (a.k.a. Mrs Gumede) kept giving me house chores. Great book, Mr Trovato.

    Thathizwe Gumede.

    1. Ben Trovato says:

      Thanks Thathizwe! Tell Mrs Gumede the chores can wait.

    Please link Capitec bank to your Payfast account…..wanted to donate last year and it was not an option. Want to buy books now, but not an option….thanks.

    1. Ben Trovato says:

      Hi Dawn. As far as I know, Capitec should be automatically linked to Payfast along with the other banks. Will check it out and get back to you.

      1. Ben Trovato says:

        Hi Dawn. There’s now a link above PayFast marked Direct Bank Transfer that should work for you as a Capitec customer. It works on the same principle as an EFT. Thanks.
