Read full description of the books:



This book is a popular one of the author's, and perhaps the most criticised and focused on, as I found out for myself. It almost inhibits one from chipping in with one's ideas about the book, but not quite. Simply put, a young man (John Lefuo) introspectively goes all over his own SA townships (residential area) knowing that his days as a free man are limited. But as readers we do not know that till late on. John considers his locus - and denizens - with fresh eyes, which as human beings we do not normally do. We become jaded, even bored with where we are usually based, and we see nothing special about it in the process. Many pundits have remarked that they do not consider John to be a "mad man", but I actually found it easy to believe that his own society would regard the protagonist as maladjusted at least. We tend to feel uneasy, especially in African societies, when we come across other personalities who seem different. That is why in Okara's The Voice, for example, the haughty, high placed king and chiefs go out their way to eliminate Okolo, who is actually just a naïve young man to them. Yet they can not tolerate him and his ideas "Do you have it?"... But this has been the case for thousands of years. John the Baptist eg from Biblical accounts, was a very good man, but the powers-that-be found his approach unusual and he ended up being decapitated. The society depicted here in this work (People of the Townships), has moved on, and can consider Lefuo with relative affection, or at worst they can be condescending towards him. And it is Lefuo himself who commits the heinous act that ensures he has to be removed from society. From their own reviews, literary pundits like Charmaine Kolwane and Mzwandile Soqaga are horrified, and can not understand why Lefuo would resort to such an act. But such is the beauty of literary works, fiction, that we can all get carried away...
