Join AGI for the virtual launch of Istraight Lendaba and Other Stories. The short story collection is written by author, Mmatshilo Tumelo Motsei
Mmatshilo Motsei will be in conversation with Danyela Dimakatso Demir, who is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Danyela recently reviewed Istraight Lendaba and Other Stories in the second edition of Imbiza Journal.
Danyela describes the short story collection as intriguing both on a formal as well as on a content level. Much like looking at a photo album with snapshots from different lives, the book offers glimpses into the lives of various characters. These characters often emerge onto the page from the most marginalised communities, communities for whom 1994 has changed nothing at all.
