This article serves as a very interesting introduction to those as me who didn't know the oeuvre of Zakes Mda. It's definitely proved that South Africa is the land of good writers. Thank you, The Nation for this.
You should cover more Latin American literature and arts in general. The US intelligentsia loves to cover the Asian, European and African arts (and it is right), but love to forget Latin America. I could spend the whole day citing relevant books and movies from this my part of the world, which deserves more attention than it usually gets from you.
