Review by Sarah Frost
KZN Literary Tourism
Monday, 03 June 2013

Nthikeng Mohlele has written a superb second novel in ‘Small Things’. This book is philosophically interesting, and psychologically astute, demonstrating intelligence and integrity. It is no wonder that world renowned author J M Coetzee said of the book: ‘Behind this story of love, music and the eternal quest, lies an artistic sensibility as generous as it is complex. The prose is rich in texture, the final effect melancholy and comic in equal proportions.’
