Eckard Smuts Reviews The Reactive by Masande Ntshanga

The ReactiveVerdict: carrot

What Masande Ntshanga accomplishes with The Reactive is something more profound: he broadens the scope of the familiar, makes visible new dimensions of experience that are slowly beginning to emerge from within the cracks in our discordant societies. It is a thoroughly compelling novel, and Ntshanga’s is a remarkable new voice. If this is the future, then things are not looking too bad for the local literary scene.
