Pleasure  
Oct. 10, 2017
Author:  Nthikeng Mohlele
Category:  Fiction: General/Other
Description:  ‘Behind this story of love, music and the eternal quest [in Small Things], lies an artistic sensibility as generous as it is complex. The prose is rich in texture, the final effect melancholy and comic in equal proportions.'
– J.M. Coetzee

Drawn against the canvas of wartime Europe and modern-day Cape Town, South Africa, Milton sacrifices all for glimpses into the secrets and deceptions of pleasure – and how powerless those apparent insights are in the vast scale of life in its glory and absurdity.
