Author: Masande Ntshanga
Triangulum is an ambitious, often philosophical and genre-bending novel that covers a period of over 40 years in South Africa’s recent past and near future—starting from the collapse of the apartheid homeland system in the early 1990s, to the economic corrosion of the 2010s, and on to the looming, large-scale ecological disasters of the 2040s. Following an unnamed narrator through the different epochs as she grows from girlhood to adolescence to motherhood, navigating, as she does, grief, alienation, friendship and love, it uses elements of science fiction and an experimental structure to explore ideas around time, contemporary sexuality, the relationship between humankind and technological progress, the question of extra-terrestrial life, and the role smaller nations have in determining the future of the planet’s survival.
