“An impressive debut that brings across voices never heard before in South African English – not only in rhythm and timbre, but plumbing the unspoken. With such a remarkable ear, Jolyn Philips is a young writer to watch.”

Antjie Krog, Author

“It is rare that one encounters a debut as good as this one. Humane, humorous and completely original, these sparkling stories give a voice to a South African community too long ignored by the literary canon. Jolyn Phillips is a gifted young writer to watch.”

Meg Vandermerwe (Zebra Crossing and This Place I Call Home)
