Ivan Vladislaviç on life in Johannesburg.

"An elegant, gentle, bitter-sweet ramble through the streets of Johannesburg with the incomparable Vladislaviç." Jonny Steinberg, author of The Number and A Man of Good Hope

"Ivan Vladislaviç's hand, not unlike that if Marlene Dumas, is unshaking as it paints silent, slow and highly vivid, almost cinematic, lines on the canvas of our shared Johannesburg." Bongani Madondo, author of Sigh, the beloved country
