A debut collection of short stories by Lindiwe Nkutha.

"Each story has the velocity and voluptuous fullness of a novella, or a street corner epic banter. The writing is a flourish of (unpretentious) philosophical gravity, leavened with everyday dialogue, and accessible beauty. This is an imaginative collection that sets fire to the confines of genre: it is both poetry and prose, and all the richer for it. Unorthodox, and ultimately alive." Bongani Madondo, author of Sigh, the Beloved Country

Born in Soweto, Lindiwe Nkutha now lives in Johannesburg, where she works as an accountant.
