A Man Who Is Not A Man recounts the personal trauma of a young
Xhosa initiate after a rite-of-passage circumcision goes wrong.
With frankness and courage, this powerful novel details the pain
and lifelong shame this protagonist experiences as a result not
only of the physical trauma, but the social ostracism from being
labeled 'a failed man.' He decodes the mysteries of this
long-standing cultural tradition and calls to account the elders
for the disintegrating support systems that allow such tragic
outcomes. But it is also through this life-changing experience that
the protagonist is forced to find his strength and humanity, and
reassess what it really means to be a man.
