RELEASE DATE: October 2014
ABOUT THE BOOK
For five years, Ndumiso Ngcobo, South Africa’s favourite big-headed columnist, has entertained Sunday Times readers with his hallucinations: amusing anecdotes, outlandish opinions and furiously funny tales that are required reading for legions of fans. Eat, Drink & Blame The Ancestors is a collection of Ngcobo’s most memorable columns in that time, edited and reworked for maximum effect, providing the perfect overview of his unique and wonderful insights. Whether he’s consuming fermented beverages and communing with the ancestors, describing life with his terrorist children and skollie dog (RIP Spiderman), or dissecting dung-beetle philosophy with the Men of Thurst, this is the finest and funniest writing in the land.
Published in partnership with the Sunday Times.
