DIE LAUGHING – stories of wit, satire and humour
Edited by Joanne Hichens
“The inventiveness, the mix of raw and honed talent, and the dark humour make for a rewarding read.” – Karina M. Szczurek
DIE LAUGHING is the fourth of the SHORT.SHARP.STORIES Awards annual anthologies. Following Bloody Satisfied (2013), Adults Only (2014) and Incredible Journey (2015) we bring you DIE LAUGHING, an anthology of stories of wit, satire and humour.
In this anthology, of wit, satire and humour, writers have poked a little fun at our crazy country, at our politics, our idiosyncrasies, our down-right ridiculous habits. A number of stories look on the lighter, brighter side of life, and, of course, dark humour is included too, irony and tragi-comedy — all with a strong sense of the South African setting.
With a foreword by our National Treasure, Evita Bezuidenhout, an introduction by Darrel Bristow-Bovey, and stories by new voices as well as prize-winning authors, including Greg Lazarus, Gail Schimmel, Fred Khumalo, Stephen Symons, Kobus Moolman, Ofentse Ribane, Barbara Erasmus and Diane Awerbuck, DIE LAUGHING is another stand-out anthology.
