"An ingenious publishing experiment...moving, surprising and revelatory."--Imraan Coovadia, author of Tales of the Metric System and The Poisoners

Limited Edition First Print

MODEL SEE MEDIA announces the publication of Sketches (2023), the debut prose work from short-story writer, essayist and poet, Kharys Ateh Laue. In Sketches, a South African writer embarks on a journey across three countries with a close friend. As they navigate different natural landscapes and social realities, they grapple with their friendship, gendered existence, race, and how even beauty can bear in it a sense of alienation. Rendered in lean, poetic language and accompanied by evocative ink illustrations, Kharys Ateh Laue’s debut is a moving and daring experiment in autobiographical fiction, marking the arrival of a distinct and assured prose stylist in contemporary South African letters.
