Four books by Blake Friedmann authors have been picked by librarians as some of the Top 20 South African Books of the last twenty years. Zakes Mda has two books on the list, THE MADONNA OF EXCELSIOR and HEART OF REDNESS, and Deon Meyer’s THIRTEEN HOURS and Marlene Van Niekerk’s AGAAT were also both chosen.
The list was put together to celebrate 20 years of South African democracy. It also features South African classics such as Nelson Mandela’s A LONG WALK TO FREEDOM and DISGRACE by J M Coetzee. You can see the complete list here.
