 About the Book 

The authors approached about eighty journalists and writers based in Johannesburg and asked them to write short pieces about the city in which they work and live.

They did not specify form or style-the contributors were free to express themselves however they wanted to.Out of this has emerged fifty-odd pieces of writing that reflect aspects of the city, idiosyncratic reactions to living and working here, appreciations of small and big things, some poems, some criticisms-all will find resonance with Joburg/Jozi residents and all will be enlightening and entertaining to others hoping to learn something about the metropolis. Amazingly, many of the contributors expressed how much they enjoy being in Joburg/Jozi-good news for a city that consistently suffers from bad press. Both editors and contributors gave their work and time free of charge. All royalties are donated to a local charitable organisation.
