Tjieng Tjang Tjerries and Other Stories documents the unique dialect and lives of the Gansbaai fishing community. Phillips’ stories reflect the natural disorder of daily life and explores how the impact of love and loss defines – and divides – families and communities. An award-winning collection of short stories and sketches set in the Overberg district. In the author’s own words: “This book is a collection of my soul, who I am as a human being, and how I connect to the people I come from.” “An impressive debut that brings across voices never heard before in South African English - not only in rhythm and timbre, but plumbing the unspoken. With such a remarkable ear, Jolyn Phillips is a young writer to watch.” – Antjie Krog. Tjieng Tjang Tjerries and Other Stories received the HSS Award for Best Fiction Single Authored 2018 and was short-listed for the UJ Debut Prize in 2017.
