Sue Nyathi, author of The Polygamist and The Gold Diggers, will be chatting to Pippa Smith of The Book Revue this month.
About the book
The Gold Diggers is a story of migration and sadness, heartbreak and some good luck. It is 2008 and the height of Zimbabwe’s economic demise. A group of passengers is huddled in a Toyota Quantum about to embark on the treacherous journey to Joburg. Amongst them is Gugulethu, who is hoping to be reconciled with her mother; Dumisani, an ambitious young man who believes he will strike it rich, Chamunorwa and Chenai, twins running from their troubled past; and Portia and Nkosi, a mother and son desperate to be reunited with a husband and father they see once a year.
You follow the characters hoping that all will be well: for some it will be and for others, it will be one more step on the road of sadness and loss.
Be warned – this is not a fairytale. It will, like all good works of fiction, take you into a different world and immerse you into the hopes and dreams of others’ lives.
