A Man Who Is Not a Man

Curator Reviews

Tsitsi Dangarembga

This sensitive heart-breaking novel tells the story of a young man who leaves his no good father's Cape Town abode to travel back to his mother’s Xhosa village where he is made to undergo initiation. This look from within the culture at the damage young men's initiation can do is immensely courageous and honest.
