Mermaid Fillet by Mia Arderne
The only human ever born wearing Jordans receives a DM on Twitter after a gang-related hit. The misson: Find the Tamagotchi, or else! This is a story of a banggat, a main ou, a genuine ou, a malnaai and a Twitter user. A story where dark and fantastical experiences are intricately woven to tell the tale of a network of wannabe gangsters, a wife fanning herself with her husband’s money in the Northern Suburbs and a sturvy twenty-nine-year-old living in Woodstock.
In this Cape Town, there’s a Goddess who casts raging red storms when female bodies are abused. It’s a place where women try to redefine their space in society and highly coveted mermaid tails are traded for R4000/kg.
