Hulisani chats to author Sue Nyathi

Author Sue Nyathi is one of the very few authors who has undoubtedly mastered the art of accentuating the day to day realities of ordinary people in our society especially us women.

About the book 'A Family Affair'

In her third book titled ‘A Family Affair’, the reader is introduced to the Mafu's, which is a close-knit traditional family with three daughters who seem close with a united spirit.
It all changes when a devastating secret is relieved followed by events that threaten to tear the family apart.
The book really captures the complexities of family, culture and the constructs that surround women.

I think what inspired me, like I think, like a lot of us from patriarchal African families, we are raised for marriage. You know from a young age, you're groomed for it.

Sue Nyathi

More importantly, I wanted to show the different types of procreation - consensual and non-consensual. And so that's why it was explicit in that exposition as well because I think it's important to understand.

Sue Nyathi

Marriage looks so different for so many of us and that's okay. You need to find it for yourself, define it for yourself and if you don't want to get married, you don't have to.
