Introducing Henrietta Rose-Innes’ Highly Anticipated Third Novel, Nineveh

NinevehComing this August from Random House Struik, Nineveh, the highly anticipated third novel by Henrietta Rose-Innes:

There’s an out-of-control swarm of insects hampering the completion of Nineveh, a luxury estate outside Cape Town. When Katya Grubbs, proprietor of Painless Pest Relocations, is called in, she discovers far more to exorcise than the mysterious infestation. Her own past returns to torment her in the form of her unruly father and the chaos he creates.

With Nineveh crumbling around her, Katya is forced to question her own place in a rapidly changing world.

This third novel by the award-winning Rose-Innes confirms her reputation as one of South Africa’s most noteworthy literary voices.

About the author

Recipient of the Caine Prize for African Writing and the African pen Literary Award, Henrietta Rose-Innes is the author of the novels Shark’s Egg and The Rock Alphabet, and the short story collection Homing. She lives and works in Cape Town.

    Masterfully edited, may I add, by our esteemed colleague Louis Greenberg.

    Anticipating this with great delight... and Louis, I confess to pangs of jealousy. What a treat it must have been, working on this.

    I was surprised, trepidated, honoured, excited and delighted, in that order. Then we had some wine when it was over.

    Am in current state of trepid, honour, excite and delight, so I feel you, Louis. There is nothing like editing good fiction. Wine is a useful adjunct. I can edit academic stuff with a glass to hand, but not the lit stuff, so I have substituted with ice-cream for now. Weird, as I don't eat the stuff usually.
