About this book

Men of the South | General Fiction

Zukiswa Wanner

Shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize 2011: Africa Region.

A fascinating novel about three men out from three worlds. Mfundo the musician and dad, Mzi - gay, but married, and Tinaye – a displaced Zimbabwean in South Africa.

“The beauty of Zukiswa Wanner’s Men of the South is that she creates, in a compelling prose, effective characters with whom I easily identify. I recognise them and therefore respond to them as people I know and experience daily. In their interaction important social issues of our time emerge organically in an entertaining storyline and are narrated in a voice that is both sensitive and witty.” Zakes Mda
