When Father Gumede, known as priest, loses his job as a farmhand, he realizes he can't afford to love his neighbor as he does himself. Despondent and enraged, priest cuts off all ties to the church and politics, determined to make a living - at whatever cost. It will take a strange story written by his son Sandile - a comical, terrifying and prophetic tale in which the downtrodden rise up to march on the wealth of a neighboring suburb - to show Priest the hope and humanity inherent in the human spirit. Beautifully poetic, funny and highly relevant, Nkosinathi Sithole's debut novel highlights the ongoing plight of many rural South Africans and the power of a community working together to bring about change.
