After three straight days of reading, I’ve finally finished Em Kwissa‘s masterpiece of a novel-memoir. It is a masterpiece, and I don’t use the term lightly. It is by far the most moving piece of literature and one of the best-written contemporary works I have ever encountered.
It is available for download on her website in the ‘Media’ section.
The controversy surrounding the publication of her book (see Lulu.com) is only an added bonus, one that I hope will help her reach a much wider audience in the long run. The book is a glorious triumph in itself, and frankly, needs no further context.
