SWEET MEDICINE MAKES THE 2016 NIELSEN BOOKSELLERS’ CHOICE AWARD SHORTLIST

Sweet Medicine by Panashe Chigumadzi has been shortlisted for the 2016 Nielsen Booksellers’ Choice Award. Around 150 nominations were received. The R20 000 prize is given to the title that South Africa’s booksellers most enjoyed reading, promoting and selling.

Sweet Medicine is a thorough and evocative attempt at grappling with a variety of important issues in the postcolonial context: tradition and modernity, feminism and patriarchy, spiritual and political freedoms and responsibilities, poverty and desperation, and wealth and abundance.

“Panashe Chigumadzi’s Sweet Medicine is as fresh and bracing as mountain air.”
– Mandla Langa
