23-year-old Chanda Radebe is up against a decision: he can continue to live in a shantytown of Soweto, South Africa, as an uninvolved, jobless dreamer — or join forces with the charismatic, self-destructive revolutionary David Themba, whose organization, Kusasa, though little more than a gang, aspires to be a viable alternative to South Africa’s bloated political parties. Pulling Chanda in yet another direction is his cousin Bornwell Malaba, an apprentice game ranger in a luxury safari lodge. Indifferent to politics, Bornwell wants only a life of peace in the wilderness for himself and respectable, safe conformity for Chanda. Both become increasingly unlikely when American businessman Alex Stanzis becomes lost in Soweto following a vacation at Bornwell’s lodge. The cousins try to help him after he attracts the unwelcome attention of David Themba — and get embroiled in far more than they bargained for while trying to do the decent thing. Set against the backdrop of a South Africa on the eve of its first-ever free elections, Chanda’s struggle to make a decision, Bornwell’s yearning for peace, and David’s ominous destiny converge in an elegantly simple tale of the roads that choose us. trade paperback | ISBN 9780972832175 5.25" x 8.25" 224 pp.
Justn Bryant, Season of Ash
JUSTIN BRYANT grew up in Merritt Island, Florida, where he spent the first 18 years of his life without gainful employment or extended holdings. He was the first person from Brevard County to be awarded a college soccer scholarship. Unfortunately, he failed out of college after three years. He stuck with the soccer career for another ten years, then coached for a while as he finally finished his BA in English, which he’s not currently using, if anyone wants it. His short fiction has been published in unknown little magazines such as The Iconoclast, The Chiron Review, Thin Air, Snowbound, and The Rockhurst Review. He’s also had stories in the anthologies Punch and Pie, Words on Ice, and Ice: New Writing on Hockey. Season of Ash and some of Justin’s short stories have been taught in universities in the United States and Canada.
