A marvelously readable collection of stories which further advances Mandla Langa’s literary reputation. His stories are well crafted and distinctive and are informed by his sophisticated, often humorous, understanding of people and South African life, and delivered in a prose that is lucid and urbane. As in his other writings, Langa is not afraid to confront human conflict, issues of sexuality and oppression, and to try the sometimes shaky ground on which South Africa’s new order is founded. If these are cautionary tales, however, then it is because Langa delights in humankind, and is as vigilant of its freedom as he is concerned with its true nature.
