Hardly Working: A Travel Memoir of Sorts by Zukiswa Wanner

Ten years after her first book was published, Zukiswa Wanner leaves her Nairobi home on an adventure-filled road trip with her partner and son. Travelling by road to the southernmost country in Africa, she gets stranded in a border town in Malawi; finds herself in the midst of a protest against bond notes in Zimbabwe that shows her that Mugabe isn't the force that he once was. And while dealing with immigration officials from Uganda to Ukraine, she learns what it means to carry an African passport. Wanner deals with the politics of the nations she considers home as well as she the politics of literary festivals and writing with the same touch of humour that has been her signature since her first book.
