South African writer wins internationally sought-after prize for Sci-fi
While it's not only heartening that South African authors are receiving international recognition and all that, what I found most wonderful about this turn of events is that it introduced me to Lauren Beukes and her work.
Before yesterday, I had never even heard of her, which I'll admit is something to be ashamed of. However, as soon as I heard the news and read a review of the book, I simply had to procure Zoo City and am currently greatly enjoying it.
Many congrats, Lauren, and I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
