The Reactive is Buzzin'

Masande holding The Reactive | TDR Radio Waves Blog 2016

Masande Ntshanga's powerful debut novel The Reactive officially drops June 5th, but copies are in stock NOW—get excited! The Reactive took South Africa by storm upon its initial publication, where it was dubbed "the hottest novel of the year" and named a finalist for the Etisalat Prize for Literature. Masande won the PEN International New Voices Award and was a finalist for 2015's Caine Prize for African Writing. We think he's pretty great, too.

The Reactive Columbus Coffee | TDR Radio Waves BlogThe Reactive was named one of Big Other's Most Anticipated Small Press Books of 2016along with some other TDR titles ;). Copies have already been spotted in the wild at independent bookstores and coffee shops around the country—check out that beauty to the left!
