For today’s Daily Bookshot, it’s a timely snap of the next title I’m tackling in my never-decreasing reading pile – Athol Fugard’s Tsotsi (Canongate). I’ll say more about it in my ‘forethoughts’ post, but for now here’s the cover blurb:
Tsotsi is an angry young gang leader in the South African township of Sophiatown. A man without a past, he exists only to kill and steal. But one night, in a moonlit grove of bluegum trees, a woman he attempts to rape forces a shoebox into his arms. The box contains a baby, and his life is inexorably changed. He begins to remember his childhood, to rediscover himself and a capacity for love.
Sound good? I thought so too. Look out for my ‘forethoughts’ post, coming as soon as I can get to it.
