The Good Doctor by Damon Galgut [Book Thoughts]

The Good Doctor is a bleak chronicle carved from life, a web of unconnected connections, a solitary story in the middle of nowhere. An anti-novel: quality reading.

The Man Who Looked Busy [Short Fiction]

A portrait of something I’ve observed that I’m now trying to represent. It’s been through the blender on Reddit and I’m happy with how it’s come out.

The Lecturer [Short Fiction]

I wrote this piece back in the vacation and brought to my writing group last week where it generated some varied and interesting feedback. It’s a piece drawing from personal experiences in Commerce at UCT. In particular, I’ve tried to capture a particular archetype of lecturer. A general lack of sympathy and empathy towards students is remarkably common in Commerce, especially in the later years. But that’s a whole other story. Hope you enjoy the piece.
