This unique collection of stories offers a biting portrait of inner-city Jo'burg (Johannesburg), 'a place where dreams come to die.' Written by first-time author Perfect Hlongwane, Jozi is a series of interlinked stories centering around an eclectic ensemble of characters, conjuring a city both familiar and surprising. With its vein of painful self-examination, evocative sense of place, and unflinching exploration of the rawer aspects of Jo'burg living, the book inevitably brings to mind the impact of cult literary figures like Dambudzo Marechere and Phaswane Mpe.
