Please join us for a discussion of the following book: BREASTS Etc. by Nthikeng Mohlele

In his seventh novel, Nthikeng Mohlele implores us to imagine a universe minus women. This is the future world that haunts portrait photographer and narrator, James Baldwin, as he alternates between present-day South Africa and the Frontier — an existential dystopia where women are inexplicably completely and permanently wiped from the world. This, according to him, can only mean extinctions of varying and catastrophic degrees. Erotic, perceptive, and transcendental; Breasts, etc. is a novel of double consciousness.
