Summary of In Corner B Summary of In Corner B Reviews for In Corner B An Excerpt from In Corner B
The quintessential story collection from "the most important black South African writer of the present age" (George Moore).

Originally published in 1967, In Corner B contains the core stories of the original editions, together with more recent pieces, and is the first new edition of Mphahlele's work since his death in 2008. Written after his return from exile, these stories inimitably capture life in both rural and urban South Africa during the days of apartheid. A new introduction by Peter Thuynsma, a South African scholar and former Mphahlele student, presents the "dean of African letters" to a new generation of readers.
