"A Mouse Amongst Men" selected for The 20 in Twenty: The Best Short Stories of South South Africa’s Democracy. Very happy and humbled to be selected for inclusion amongst such awesome writers whose works I greatly admire (like Zukiswa Wanner, Niq Mhlongo, Sarah Lotz, Ivan Vladislavic, and Siphiwo Mahala, to name a few).
