Nineveh in the Guardian: “surprisingly gripping”

In a short review for The Guardian, Emily Rhodes calls Nineveh “surprisingly griping”:

Its strength lies in Rose-Innes’s preoccupation with the “shifting, restless … discontented city” of Cape Town, “convulsing in a frenzy of urban ants-in-the-pants” … as the wealthy emphatically assert boundaries the author shows to be futile. Her pests are persistent and ultimately powerful – an effective metaphor to argue for a more permeable, equal city.

Nineveh is out this week from Gallic Books / Aardvark Bureau.
