A book cover illustration for Jolyn Phillips’ debut collection of vivid short stories set in and around Gansbaai – a small coastal town in South Africa’s Western Cape.

“An impressive debut that brings across voices never heard before in South African English – not only in rhythm and timbre, but plumbing the unspoken. With such a remarkable ear, Jolyn Phillips is a young writer to watch.” – Antjie Krog
