The Cape Times Reviews In the Spirit of McPhineas Lata and Other Stories

From Thoughts from Botswana by Lauri Kubuitsile Fri Feb 22 2013, 12:42:00

Below is today's review of my short story collection, In the Spirit of McPhineas Lata and Other Stories, in the Cape Town South Africa newspaper The Cape Times. Hope you can read it!!

An excerpt from the end:

"...Her storytelling is rich in its simplicity and reminiscent of the telling that is engaged in folk tales. Kubuitsile's strength lies in her ability to highlight ordinary human moments. She zooms in on them with care and humour, turning the seemingly ordinary inside out to reveal the magic that lies within." Yay!
