Presented as a message from the future, Masande Ntshanga’s new novel Triangulum boldly mixes science-fiction with philosophy and details of South African history seldom examined.
Ntshanga shot the lights out locally and internationally with his first novel, The Reactive, which was shortlisted for the 2015 Barry Ronge Fiction Prize and the University of Johannesburg Debut Prize.
