“This apricot tree has multiple souls that fill me with wonder every morning and
enchant me by afternoon. This tree has bitter-sweet memories, just like the fruit it
If the apricot trees of Soweto could talk, what stories would they tell? This
short story collection provides an imaginative answer. Imbued with a vivid sense
of place, it captures the vibrancy of the township and surrounds. Told with satirical
flair, life and death are intertwined in these tales where funerals and the ancestors
feature strongly; where cemeteries are places to show off your new car and catch
up on the latest gossip.
Populating these stories is a politician mesmerised by his mistress’s
manicure, zama-zamas running businesses underground, a sangoma with a
remedy for theft, soccer fans ready to mete out a bloody justice, a private dancer
in love and many other intriguing characters.
Take your seat under the apricot tree and be enthralled by tales that are both
entertaining and thought-provoking.
