‘The twitter-user had just sent the DM: Bring me the corpse of the Tamagotchi.’ In an alternative Cape Town, a nonbinary person, the only person ever to be born wearing Nike Jordans, is tasked with finding a dead Tamagotchi.
‘The twitter-user had just sent the DM: Bring me the corpse of the Tamagotchi.’ In an alternative Cape Town, a nonbinary person, the only person ever to be born wearing Nike Jordans, is tasked with finding a dead Tamagotchi. The device was last seen in the clutches of eight-year-old Kaylin Arendse, when she and her family were murdered in a gang-related hit.

Now our Jordan-wearer must track down the device for the new head of a crime family – or face an untimely ending. Mermaid Fillet is an enthralling afro-surrealist novel about the fringes of Cape Town society and the people who govern that world. Dark and fantastical experiences are intricately woven into this network of wannabe gangsters and the trade of highly coveted mermaid tails for R 4 000/kg.

A Cape Town you know, and you don’t know; where women are trying to redefine their space in society; where a storm rages red when female bodies are abused. This is a noir crime caper about feminism, misogyny, violence and fear.
