6th December, 2013. Johannesburg. Gin has returned home from New York to throw a party for her mother's 80th birthday; a few blocks away, at the Residence, Nelson Mandela's family prepares to announce Tata Mandela's death. So begins 'Johannesburg', Fiona Melrose's searing second novel. Responsive to Virginia Woolf's 'Mrs Dalloway', the story follows a polyphonic course across a single day, culminating in a party and traces the fractures and connections of the city.
