Podcast: John Maytham Discusses Songeziwe Mahlangu’s Debut Novel, Penumbra
John Maythem reviewed Songeziwe Mahlangu’s debut novel, Penumbra on 567 Cape Talk. Mahlangu and Maytham both attended Dale College in King William’s Town, which Maytham says is known for producing sportsmen. He thinks Mahlangu may be the first author to have gone there.
