Jane Taylor, one of my former lecturers from Wits, has won the Olive Shriner award for her first novel, Of Wild Dogs. It is a super book. She did some readings from it at a seminar run by my former advisor, in 2005, and I was so engaged by it that I read it in a single sitting, a rare occurrence for me. Well done, Jane. I am looking forward to the next one.
