Review by Fred Khumalo, September 13, 2014

Mukwevho - Kwaito fiction's new recruit

The Violent Gestures of Life, young author Tshifhiwa Given Mukwevho's first novel, typical of first books of fiction, has whiffs of autobiography.

Gift is fourteen when he becomes an inmate of Qalakabusha youth reformatory. Casualty of a ‘bad upbringing’, he takes out his anger in predictable ways, veering onto a path of crime that lands him behind bars. It is there amid the unremitting harshness of prison life that he has to find in himself the insights that will allow him to emerge from victimhood into personhood.
