About this book:

Shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize 2011: Africa Region A gripping tale of love, betrayal, friendship, power and money, and the struggle of three men to be accepted in a prejudiced society. Mfundo is a struggling jazz musician. All hope of ever becoming famous ends when he gets into a fight with an international artist. With no one willing to hire him, Mfundo takes on the role of house-husband. But Sli is not willing to be the “man” of the house. Mzilikazi is fighting his own demons – he is a gay man in a heterosexual marriage. Tinaye is a Zimbabwean struggling to gain citizenship in South Africa, hence his current situation – underpaid and overqualified. For Tinaye, the only way to speedily gain citizenship is to marry Grace. But then he meets Sli. A fresh and original story told from the male point of view, with Wanner’s customary energetic and character-driven style.
