147pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2021
Tshidiso Moletsane's debut novel, set in Johannesburg and Soweto.
"This book is a fictional yet honest depiction of our society and our psychology, though it may seem vulgar and grotesque to sensitive readers. It is an encounter with a nation trying to grapple with its realities. As Steve Biko put it, 'You are either alive and proud or you are dead, and when you are dead, you can't care anyway.' Enjoy this novel and decide at the end if you are alive or dead, because to be alive means to self-determine most importantly among other things." from the foreword by Koketso Poho
