Love, Interrupted

by Reneilwe Malatji

An engaging short story collection full of rich characters you won’t forget - From Lebo, whose dream is to take over the business of her domestic worker’s mother’s boss and uses a witchdoctor to punish her detractors, to MmaPhuti who spikes her famous ginger-beer with whiskey. Malatji deftly tackles serious themes of patriarchy and racism, while maintaining prose that flows effortlessly with lightness and humor.
