About the book
Spud - Exit, Pursued by a Bear is the fourth and final instalment in the much loved series about life in boarding school - in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands - through the eyes of the protagonist, John “Spud” Milton.
The adventures of the Crazy 8 gang, the eccentric characters at the boarding school, Spud’s tumultuous love life and his off-centre family have had readers in stitches and tears since 2005. After the commercial success in SA the series is now available in North America.
In 2010, the film adaptation of Spud – shot at Michaelhouse, the Anglican Diocesan College of Natal, a boarding school for senior boys - was released with great success; the cast included Troy Sivan as John “Spud” Milton, John Cleese as Mr “The Guv” Edly and Tanit Phoenix as Mrs "Eve" Wilson. Production for Spud 2: The Madness Continues has already begun.
