Siren, the debut novel by Kuli Roberts – a classic rags-to-riches tale, jam-packed with drama
Siren, the debut novel by television and radio personality Kuli Roberts, is out on 1 November 2019 from BlackBird Books!
‘Soon they were engaged in a bout of frantic fucking, Clifton moaning as he’d never moaned before, and when Zinhle reached orgasm her entire body trembled, having long been deprived of such pleasures. She’d been more intrusive this time, cupping his balls during oral sex and inserting her finger into his anus. It gave him pleasure, and she loved that it did, loved fucking him, loving everything about the whole experience.’
About the book
Meet Zinhle, the glamorous Siren, as she reels through the highs and lows of fame-seeking in Jozi.
Kuli Roberts’s debut novel is filled with sex, drugs, alcohol and tabloid scandals.
Abandoned by her father, Zinhle was raised by her single mother, Mabel, in Dobsonville. Growing up, she always knew she would be a superstar.
But her journey to stardom is filled with both pain and pleasure. She lives through a sham marriage, being a lover of a Nollywood high roller, attending sex parties and having an affair with a footballer. She bed hops from man to powerful man, overcoming cattiness, rivalry, cheating and dodgy agents. She has attitude and sass in bucket loads and is never far from the latest front-page scandal.
Siren, Kuli Roberts’s gripping debut novel, is a classic rags-to-riches tale, jam-packed with drama, hot sex and reversals of fortune that will keep readers zipping through the pages until the very end.

Writing Siren was delicious as all those columns were about men. Siren's journey you will relate to. Her pain in the entertainment industry reflect ours in 2019, and so do her pleasures. Men marrying women when all they want is a hairy chest is soul destroyin
