Final part of Political Novel Debate

In this Sunday's edition is the final part of our 3-part series looking at the nature of the political novel in the post-apartheid era. Mbongiseni Buthelezi suggests that we shouldn't be agonising over the novel when other cultural forms seem better able to address and engage with current conditions. Kelwyn Sole asks why the political novel should be seen as redundant after liberation? Michiel Heyns (pictured above) believes that the crime genre cannot serve to plot the socio-political conditions in the country unless you view crime as the main component of our political situation
