Beyond the silos of South African literature

As its striking cover image suggests, this substantial offering from UKZN Press is very much about the now. Its 400 pages, divided into 17 chapters and an introduction, survey an array of current topics and genres in South African literature from poetry, prose and drama to autobiography, diasporic literature, gay or alternative writing, eco-literature and much more.

This book considers what, in South Africa, is being published and how we may value what is being published, now. ‘Now’ is not only post-apartheid, or after the Truth Commission – the familiar signposts – but beyond both Antjie Krog’s Country of my Skull (1998), the TRC marker, and J.M. Coetzee’s Disgrace (1999), a book that for many, including arguably its author, marks a point of no return in its Afro-pessimism.
