0 Reviews

Torn between his adoration for his wife and young son and the irresistible draw of the criminal underworld, Shatterproof Bhekuzulu is headstrong, smart, cunning, and strangely endearing. The Lazarus of the tsotsi world, Shatterproof dithers between his need for redemption and his love for illicit scheming. Violent, funny, and intriguing, this story paints a colorful picture of a South African hustler during the apartheid—one so magnetic it hurts to watch him dig his own grave, one disastrous decision at a time.
