I’m super excited for my new book, Afterland, to come out later this year, and so are the people over at the Mail and Guardian. Afterland is featured in this list they put together about great reads to look forward to in 2020, alongside books by Yaa Gyasi, Ottessa Moshfegh, and the incredible Carmen Maria Machado.

South Africa’s queen of speculative fiction is back with her fifth novel. This one’s set in the American West in a dystopian future in which 99% of the men have died out. The narrative follows a mother and her 12-year-old son who has to disguise himself as a girl while they search for a place of safety.
