Synopses & Reviews
"I found myself in the thick of things. I shut my eyes experimentally, opened them again. If I was dreaming, the scene should change – but no, everything was exactly as it had been before."
So begins A Labour of Moles, by one of South Africa’s most important writers, Ivan Vladislavic: a story which takes the reader into a realm utterly alien and at the same time as familiar as the letters forming the words on the page and the very building-blocks of fiction.
“Ivan Vladislavic’s oeuvre has involved ongoing innovation in form that refuses pigeonholing . . . [His] innovation is not merely a literary trick or game, but a function of a way of living that brings together socio-political relevance and the vitality of freedom.”
