In Love with a Stranger is a moving collection of short stories by Johannesburg-based Kaizer Mabhilidi Nyatsumba, whose impressive powers of human observations and acclaimed writing expertise are on display in this book. Contained in it are fascinating short stories written at a time when South Africa was going through an historic political transition that gripped the world’s attention. Although based in South Africa, the stories have a universal appeal. While some may be of greater interest or relevance to people in countries dealing with conflicts or going through transitions, the themes and emotions that the stories touch upon are universal in nature, such as love and fear, among others.
