Lewis Nkosi’s influence as both South African writer and
critic has been profound. His significance stems from the
fact that he was one of the very few surviving members of
the Drum generation of writers of the 50s, one who continued
to write throughout the apartheid and post-apartheid
decades. Author of plays, critical essays and novels,
Nkosi’s voice is preserved in Letters to My Native Soil
which collects email correspondence between the writer and
others and provides a valuable insight into a working
writer’s life in Europe and at home. The book is illustrated
with personal photographs and accompanied by Nkosi’s own
work in the form of appendices.
