About The Book
Slouching toward purgatory.
In fourteen rich and entangled stories, Nick Mulgrew’s debut work of fiction explores the sorrows and absurdities of youth, spirituality and prejudice in the verdant and history-stained settlements of South Africa’s coastline.
From drunken broken-family vacations to a postman’s jaunt into the weird world of the ultra-rich; from a housewife’s visit to a library for the blind to a haunting descent into a colonial Purgatory, these stories exhibit a magpie’s eye for the smallest of tragedies and grandest of ironies. But, set on the stage of the everyday, Stations conjures not just a vision of a South Africa that implodes and resurrects itself as it wishes, but also of the people caught in its wake, their lives tottering desperately between happiness and eternal futility.
Contains various award-winning and almost-award-winning stories, including:
“Posman”, shortlisted for the 2015 White Review Prize.
“Turning”, the winner of the 2014 National Arts Festival Short Sharp Stories Award.
“Ponta do Ouro”, longlisted for the Twenty in 20 Project.
