About this book

Thirteen Cents | General Fiction

K. Sello Duiker


Thirteen Cents is an extraordinary and unsparing account of a coming of age in Cape Town.
Reminiscent of some of the greatest child narrators in literature, Azure's voice will stay with the reader long after this short novel is finished. Based on personal experiences.

K. Sello Duiker was, before his death in 2005, widely regarded as South Africa’s most promising young writer. Thirteen Cents, originally published in 2000, was his first novel and won the Commonwealth Writers Prize Best First Book Award (Africa Region) and has gone on to become a modern South African classic. This is a new edition of a Duiker’s explosive debut.
