Rusty Bell

By Nthikeng Mohlele

Michael - a respected and haunted South African corporate lawyer - is the narrator of Rusty Bell, a sweeping, intimate, and intricate exploration of the plurality and mystery of things: love, grief, fate, lust, but, most of all, life. Rusty Bell delves into head-cracking and bruising questions in this coming-of- and against-age story; told with humor, beauty, and calculated rage. Brimming with delicacy and authorial thunder, this part-campus novel and part-philosophical epistle is one man's rebellion against 'life as we know it.' Rusty Bell is an appallingly wise examination of the perils of being human, written by author Nthikeng Mohlele, who knows the beauty and savagery of words. *** "'Rusty Bell' is author Nthikeng Mohlele's third novel and continues to document this Johannesburg, South African author as a master storyteller rich with imagination and able to deftly craft truly recognizable characters and offering his readers with a truly engaging novel that is as entertaining as it is memorable. Very highly recommended for personal reading lists and community libraries..." -- Midwest Book Review, MBR Bookwatch, February 2015 ***[South African Nthikeng Mohlele is the author of Small Things (University of KwaZulu-Natal Press - ISBN 978 1 86914 245 2 - 2013).
