The Mistress’s puppy is a fascinating new choice of twelve brief tales through David Medalie, together with award winners – ‘Recognition’ and ‘The Mistress’s puppy’ – and a Foreword and Afterword, ‘Observations on Post-apartheid Literature’, via Michael Titlestad. Deft, sophisticated and nuanced, Medalie’s tales convey an complete and mature author at his most sensible. Their concentration is the lived adventure of individuals: ostensibly uneventful lives into which the unforeseen erupts. those tales locate importance within the reversals, ironies and coincidences of lifestyles. they convey the characters – and the reader – to the edge of recognition.
