After flunking his law studies at UCT, he now has to find a way to either admit the truth to his family, or somehow find a job that will allow him to continue fooling them. Soon after his arrival back home in Soweto he meets up with a Nigerian guy named Yomi who promises to help him solve all his problems. What should Bafana do? Should he bite the bullet and confess the truth to his mother and uncle, or should he rather take up Yomi’s suggestion to buy a law degree and start practicing as an attorney? A piercingly funny yet poignant novel by the author of Dog Eat Dog.

“Niq Mhlongo is one of the most high-spirited and irreverent new voices of South Africa’s postapartheid literary scene.”
― Rachel Donadio, New York Times
“A uniquely South African story, told in a fast, hip, and happening style that is synonymous with Soweto, where the author’s witty, dodgy, plain and simple characters play out their daily drama.”
― Lucas Ledwaba, City Press
