‘The writing pulses across the page, electric with images and style. It moves between interior monologues, straight narrative, and poetic descriptions with ease, incorporating Australian slang, Swahili, Bantu, and even made-up language explanations. The characters occupy a rich linguistic landscape—and there are a lot of them, all drawn with fine detail and precision: a pair of healing twins, Lau and Tau; an ethereal night-runner, Aviana; and Sticky, a former child soldier who claims to have killed a lion.
A twisting plot, a setting rife with potential danger, and a past full of its own skeletons all build to a head in Serengotti, a novel about an African Australian and the migrant community zie comes to call hir own.’
CAMILLE-YVETTE WELSCH Foreword (July / August 2023)
