About this book:

Andzani’s childhood community has become a shadow in his Cape Town life that holds him hostage. He minimizes his visits back home to Mbambamencisi as a way to evade unpleasant, long-repressed memories. But as the past ruptures in the present, another Grindr binge fails to offer respite.  A Soft Landing is a powerful coming-of-age story about trauma, healing, family, and the courage to love and be loved.
