I am happy that I’ve signed another contract with Kwela Books, who will publish my next novel Comfortable Skin in 2020, under the new title All That is Left. Comfortable Skin was written in 2008. In 2009 it was accepted by a Cape Town publisher, but the down-turn in the economy at the time forced the publishing house to withdraw the offer. The manuscript gathered dust for some years, until it won the Minara Aziz Hassim Literary Award in Durban in 2018. I’m looking forward to publisher Carolyn Meads of Kwela working her magic and making it into a real book.
