Imitation

Imitation happened when an unsuspecting philosopher one day found himself equally outraged by South African president Jacob Zuma's Big Man building project in Nkandla; awed, all over again, by Milan Kundera's Immortality; and numbed by the monument to hubris generally known as 'the highest basilica in all of Christendom', Our Lady of Peace in Yamoussoukro, Cote d'Ivoire. ENDORSEMENT QUOTES: 'Imitation is a strikingly original work of great subtlety, complexity, imagination, originality, and a clear homage to Milan Kundera's Immortality. I have never read a novel quite like this.' - JASON M. WIRTH, Commiserating With Devastated Things: Milan Kundera and the Entitlements of Thinking 'Imitation is challenging, ambitious and intelligent. It is a fascinating and adventurous parallel to Immortality that is intriguingly and playfully managed; an impressive and carefully considered novel that takes some of Milan Kundera's most enigmatic thoughts and modernises them.' - ANDREW BROWN, 2006 recipient of the Sunday Times Fiction Prize for Coldsleep Lullaby 'With stylistic virtuosity, Praeg successfully enacts the tempestuous relationship between philosophy and fiction while elegantly and eloquently exploring the relationship between coloniser and colonised subjects. It is a brilliant, sparkling novel that heralds a very thoughtful, new voice on the South African literary scene.' - SAM NAIDU, Associate Professor of Literary Theory, World Literatures, and English Literature, Rhodes University
