We recently caught up with Phumlani Pikoli to chat about this upcoming launch in Cape Town for ‘The Fatuous State of Severity’. It is a collection of short stories and illustrations exploring young South Africans of our generation as they live their lives day-to-day with the constant stress of Social Media, relationships, language barriers and insecurities and more. He has a wealth of South Africa’s top illustrators involved in the making of this series including our good friend Skubalisto.
This edition includes new stories and back stories behind Phumlani’s journey. The Cape Town launch is happening this week (tomorrow – 5th) and we’d suggest you get yourself an invite to this incredible launch.
Intense and provocative, this new edition of the book, which was first self-published in 2016, features six additional stories as well as an introductory essay on Phumlani Pikoli’s publishing journey.
Check out the trailer to give you more understanding of the book and the creative path it took:
