[City Editor] Niq Mhlongo: Spinach, under my own apricot tree

Since the publication of City Editor Niq Mhlongo’s latest work of short stories, Soweto, Under the Apricot Tree, it has become fashionable to have oneself photographed reading the book under—well, if an apricot tree is not available, any tree will do.

We asked Mhlongo for a picture of this fabled tree and he sent one in from a few years back.

If you have the book, but no tree, we advise you to recline underneath this Instagram while reading.

If you have a tree, but no book, we advise a trip to the bookshop before you next cool your heels in the shade.

Send your photos to editor@johannesburgreviewofbooks.com
