African Delights

African DelightsThese wide-ranging stories take us from Sophiatown in the Drum era to the rural Eastern Cape to the luxury Jozi homes of present-day tenderpreneurs. By turns poignant, raunchy, philosophical and funny, they cast a wry and astute eye on universal human questions and conundrums presented by our particular historical moment.

Andries W. Oliphant, Academic and former Editor of Staffrider, remarks, “Written fluently and deftly, they are laced with wit, humour and satire; testimony to an incisive, thoughtful and refined literary talent.”
