Gin has returned home from New York to throw a party for her mother’s eightieth birthday; a few blocks away, at the Residence, Nelson Mandela’s family prepares to announce Tata Mandela’s death… So begins Johannesburg, Fiona Melrose’s searing second novel. An irascible mother; an anxious daughter trying to negotiate her birthplace and her past, her former lover, theirs domestic workers; a homeless hunchback fighting for justice; a mining magnate; a troubled novelist called Virginia – these are the characters who give voice to the city on a day hot with nerves and tension and history.
