W is for Witness is a mischievous hybrid of intertext, cyberstalking, contemporary social critique with a touch of Wordle.
An unusual narrative team splice together their lively viewpoints in pursuit of a word at the heart of a suburb, whilst keeping a beady eye on the whereabouts of the author herself.
‘I read this wonderful contemporary satire with increasing glee. The writing is witty, the literary playfulness deft, the exhortation to look and listen constant. The narrative team’s depiction is infectiously exuberant, whilst the failures of the inhabitants of the neighbourhood in which the story and its keyword unfold are painfully familiar. This unique tale makes possible a spirited but sceptical claim: she who is tired of Linden is tired of life.’ Michael Titlestad (Professor of English, Wits University Johannesburg)
