In fourteen rich and entangled stories, Nick Mulgrew’s debut work of fiction explores the sorrows and absurdities of youth, spirituality and prejudice in the verdant and history-stained settlements of South Africa’s coastline.
From drunken broken-family vacations to a postman’s jaunt into the weird world of the ultra-rich; from a housewife’s visit to a library fro the blind to a haunting descent into a colonial Purgatory, these stories exhibit a magpie’s eye for the smallest of tragedies and grandest of ironies. But, set on the stage of the everyday, Stations conjures not just a vision of a South Africa that implodes and resurrects itself as it wishes, but also of the people caught in its wake, their lives tottering desperately between happiness and eternal futility.
