Book Review – As You Like It

As You Like It

As You Like It is a collection of fiction, poetry, journalism, photography and academic writing by allies of the LGBTQI community. By Fundiswa Nkwanyana

Be prepared to be blown away because this anthropology is filled with pages of beautifully crafted sentences that made me appreciate the artistry of all the writers and photographers in this book. Writers from across Africa unapologetically open up about their lives as they express heart wrenching and elated moments.

All the contributors are short-listed entries that submitted their work for the Gerald Kraak Award. This prestigious award, in the writing circles showcases some of the most provocative work from thought leaders, activists, emerging and celebrated writers in Africa.  With every page turned, my understanding on humanity, love, sexuality and the endearing human spirit became clearer.  The book is a conversation starter, and encourages the reader to be open minded, understanding and loving in a subtle way.
