The seventh book in the Wake Up, This is Joburg series by Mark Lewis and Tanya Zack takes us to Hillbrow—the inner city’s crowded, highrise flatland. There, at densities that are ten times greater than those of Hong Kong, people find ways to get on with things. In Birthial’s flat, getting on with things requires assessing one’s attachment to privacy, ownership and belonging. It probably also demands a thick skin and a good sense of humour.
