    Hi Kopano, I didn't realise you were born in Mamelodi! I was not born there but I grew up there and my family still lives ko Mams. Anyway, I just wanted to say - I love 'Coconut' and appreciate what it represents and congratulations on a brave offering. It's funny because I read [it] a while ago and now I've been reading [it] (more intensely) for my writing projects, it is so multi layered and it keeps me up way beyond a godly hour :-) (not complaining).
    I'm employing 'Coconut' for screen adaptation project - wish me luck!
    Spilt Milk is on my list and I can't wait to delve into it.

    All the best with your studies at UCT!

    Kind Regards
