Don’t miss Zinzi Clemmons at Exclusive Books Rosebank for the launch of What We Lose
 More about the book!


Jonathan Ball Publishers and Exclusive Books are thrilled to invite you to the launch of Zinzi Clemmons’s debut novel What We Lose.

From an author of rare, haunting power, a stunning novel about a young African-American woman coming of age – a deeply felt meditation on race, sex, family, and country.

Raised in Pennsylvania, Thandi views the world of her mother’s childhood in Johannesburg as both impossibly distant and ever present. She is an outsider wherever she goes, caught between being black and white, American and not. She tries to connect these dislocated pieces of her life, and as her mother succumbs to cancer, Thandi searches for an anchor – someone, or something, to love.
