Publication Date: June 2018

Returning home to bury his brother after seven years abroad, the narrator recalls their life with a grandmother and with an adopted sister and stuttering friend, comes to escape the predatory history of a particular corner of Africa.

He describes the trajectories of their lives; Puso, his brother, always earnest but now dead and to be put into the ground, his white wife, shattered and berating the harshness of custom and of the elements; Twice, so named because of his stutter, come to escape the politics of " ... the country neighbouring ours", then disappearing again to become a more exact refugee; Abuti Jefti, repository of their history and still drunk and dishevelled in the yard in front of his house; Thembi their adopted sister, at first diffident and then a firm occupant of their home, bequeathed to her on account of their migration to better opportunity.

How We Buried Puso is an invocation for connection, for the reconstruction of societies, for faith in family and community and for the spiritual odyssey, however conjured up.
