Scatterlings, by Resoketswe Manenzhe
The novel is set over a hundred years ago, and chronicles a tale of migrancy very different to what we have come to expect in African literature. It incorporates myth and ritual, and the stories of extraordinary, ordinary women.
What Scatterlings illustrates is that it is possible to write what you know without limiting yourself to your own actual, physical, lived experience.
Rešoketšwe Manenzhe's novel, Scatterlings, won the 2020 Dinaane Debut Fiction Award.
