Azanian Bridges

Nick Wood

"I read Bridges with much pleasure... Chilling and fascinating." - Ursula K. Le Guin

In a modern day South Africa where Apartheid still holds sway, Sibusiso Mchunu, a young amaZulu man, finds himself the unwitting focus of momentous events when he falls foul of the system and comes into possession of a secret that may just offer hope to his entire people. Pursued by the ANC on one side and Special Branch agents on the other, Sibusiso has little choice but to run.

Azanian Bridges is a truly ground-breaking book from South African-born author Nick Wood. This, his debut novel, is a socially acute fast-paced thriller that propels the reader into a world of intrigue and threat, leading to possibilities that examine the conscience of a nation.

"A very good novel indeed; the emotional intelligence is as high as its political insightfulness - the whole is compelling and moving." - Adam Roberts

"A deeply-felt examination of Apartheid and its lingering effects through the lens of speculative fiction... challenging and thought-provoking." - Lavie Tidhar

"This is a gut-puncher of a novel; original, brilliantly written, and a page-turner of note." - Sarah Lotz

"Vivid, pacy, quietly furious, beautifully observed, with an ending that liberates and lacerates in equal measure." - Stephanie Saulter

"Politically acute and powerful... in many ways a 'text book' story because it's so well done." - Ian Watson
