Modjaji is venturing into a new genre – fantasy – with its forthcoming publication, The Pride of Noonlay. This collection of short stories by Shanice Ndlovu will be published in September 2020 and is one to look forward to.
The stories in The Pride of Noonlay are crackling, lyrical, and controlled, and the worlds Ndlovu conjures are fascinating and vivid. This collection is a fresh contribution to African fantasy. Take a deep dive into stories of love, sacrifice, and loss – with this collection, you won’t want to come up for air. Ndlovu’s voice is original, confident, and lyrically beautiful, weaving tales of humanity even in the strangest of circumstances.
The fabulous cover was designed by Neo Mhlanga with lettering by Jesse Breytenbach. This publication has been sponsored by the NIHSS.
