"Irresistible, engaging and captivating like the vast beautiful landscapes of Africa. A beautiful, timely and necessary piece of work at a time when the continent is battling with issues of identity and migration. This is definitely a briefcase worth opening." Styles Lucas Ledwaba, author of We Are Going to Kill Each Other Today - The Marikana story

"An utterly absorbing, highly educational, and extremely touching collection that seduces the reader with its multi-layered mysteries of hope and humanity. It's impossible not to admire the author's wide-screen view of the Anglophone, Lusophone, and Francophone worlds where his stories are perfectly pitched." Niq Mhlongo, author of Affluenza and Soweto, Under the Apricot Tree
