This anthology by Lawrence Mduduzi Ndlovu, Soweto-born Catholic Cleric, lecturer, writer, poet, speaker and arts enthusiast, has the ability to reach out and touch almost every human emotion.
It evinces pride, respect, despair, joy and profound sadness.
It remembers and salutes past and contemporary South Africans, it lauds them as Africans: “These are Africans”, it says.
It is a recognition that “Life Happens”, especially in our townships, and is a tribute to life’s virtues.
It reflects the author’s deep and abiding faith, and, “In the End”, it forces us to confront our own mortality.
An emotional and satisfying read.
