Tsotsi

Last week, I saw the film version of Tsotsi with TD, TC, and Coppertop. Tsotsi The Book (TTB) is more depressing than Tsotsi The Movie (TTM), which I suppose is to be expected since depression doesn't sell tickets.

TTB and TTM are both excellent in their own ways. TTB takes place in Apartheid-era South Africa while TTM is set in post-Apartheid South Africa. Both TTB and TTM have moments of despair and redemption. I thought that TTM's redemption was pretty easy to predict thanks to the clues given via its soundtrack.

Next up for the book club is Ada, or Ardor-- over 600 pages of Nabokov to read. I'm also going to read Louisiana Power and Light by John Dufresne.
