295pp., paperback, First English Language Edition, Cape Town, 2018
"This book forms part of a series of eight texts and a larger translation endeavour undertaken by the Centre for Multilingualism and Diversities Research (CMDR) at the University of the Western Cape."
Originally published in isiZulu in 1996 as Asikho Ndawo Bakithi.
"Justice has been done. The translation of this modern day isiZulu classic is long overdue. Now for the first time, the wider world out there will get down into the throbbing heart of the unofficial civil war that wrecked South Africa from the mid-1980s right up to the day of the first democratic election of 1994. By turns tender and furious, this novel will change the way the world sees South Africa." Fred Khumalo, author of Dancing the Death Drill
