n English in Africa - Making the Changes : Jazz in South African Literature and Reportage, Michael Titlestad : book review




The subtitle of Michael Titlestad's book is deceptively straightforward. It is, as might be expected, an analysis of representations of jazz in various textual forms, but the study also includes non-textual genres. The range of discourses covered is vast: novels, short fiction, poetry, autobiography, reportage, literary portraits, interviews; even a musical - the 1959 production of with its surrounding debates - and multimedia work by Zim Ngqawana and Lefifi Tladi find their way into the book.
