Duration: 60 mins

Age Restriction: 15 years + Depending on availability - CASH ONLY tickets can be purchased at the venue door from 30 minutes before each performance.

Lecture Details:

Nkosi’s insights into SA literature, culture and society first appeared in the 1950s, when the ‘new’ urban African in Sophiatown and on Drum magazine mockingly opposed Verwoerd’s Bantu retribalisation policies. Having lived for 40 years in exile, he returned to South Africa, intermittently, after the unbannings of 1990. His critical eye, however, never left home.  Writing home with wit, irony and moral toughness Nkosi assesses a range of leading writers, including Herman Charles Bosman, Breyten Breytenbach, J.M. Coetzee, Athol Fugard, Nadine Gordimer, Bessie Head, Alex La Guma, Bloke Modisane, Es’kia Mphahlele, Nat Nakasa, Njabulo S. Ndebele, Alan Paton and Can Themba. Lindy Stiebel and Michael Chapman will introduce the writer and his work.
