Taking the first step into the wide world of African Literature

As I posted a few days earlier, I decided to participate in Kinnas African Reading Challenge. Today the first of my 5 chosen books arrived: Zoo City by the contemporary South African author Lauren Beukes. Wikipedia stated: „It won the 2011 Arthur C. Clarke Award and the 2010 Kitschies Red Tentacle for best novel. The cover of the British edition of the book was awarded the 2010 BSFA Award for best artwork, and the book itself was shortlisted in the best novel category of the award., so it seems to be a very good point to start.
As soon as I finished reading it, I’m going to write a review.
