This novel collection by first-time author Perfect Hlongwane offers a biting portrait of inner-city Jo'burg, 'a place where dreams come to die'. Written as a series of interlinked stories centring around an eclectic ensemble of characters, it conjures for readers a city both familiar and surprising. With its vein of painful self-examination, evocative sense of place and unflinching exploration of the rawer aspects of Jo'burg living, it brings to mind the impact of cult literary figures like Dambudzo Marechera and Phaswane Mpe.
Perfect Hlongwane has lectured English at the University of the Witwatersrand and currently works as an independent editing consultant in Johannesburg and Lecturer in Communication at Varsity College.
