Lewis Nkosi. The Black Psychiatrist & Flying Home. Fiction, Critical Perspectives and Homage
This rich volume, edited by Astrid Starck-Adler and Dag Henrichsen, is dedicated to the astounding South African writer and literary critic Lewis Nkosi (1936–2010). In this book, Nkosi’s celebrated one-act play ‘The Black Psychiatrist’ is published together with its hitherto unpublished sequel ‘Flying Home’, a play on the satirically fictionalized inauguration of Mandela as South African president. Critical appraisals, tributes and recollections by scholars and friends reflect on the beat of his writing and life.
