David Philip Publishers invites you to join them for the Cape Town launch of Stations, the debut collection of short stories by Nick Mulgrew.
In Stations, Mulgrew tells 14 subtly interlinked tales set along the Southern African coastline from Cape Town to Mozambique, in which relationships, dreams and even narrators die; where fields catch fire, towers implode, and the shadows of the past grow long. But even from the most uneasy corners – tourist traps, colonial purgatories and libraries for the blind – these stories offer small mercies: glimpses of faith, beauty and the possibility of salvation, no matter how slight.
Told with a magpie’s eye for the vivid in the ordinary, and the surreal in the everyday, Stations presents a fresh, compelling and essential new voice. Masande Ntshanga will be chatting to Mulgrew on Thursday, 3 March at The Book Lounge to find out more about the book.
Mulgrew launched the myth of this is that we’re all in this together , his debut collection of poetry, at the end of last year and co-edited the new Short Story Day Africa anthology, Water: New Short Fiction from Africa, with Karina M Szczurek. Ntshanga is the author of The Reactive, one of the biggest debut novels of the past two years.
