Urban One is a cutting-edge anthology that captures current South African popular culture. Seen more as moments in the lives of 15 to 30 year-old South Africans than a collection of short stories, the works send out a message that to be young and alive in post-apartheid South Africa is to participate in a freshly emerging, uniquely coloured and vibrant cultural experience. The feel is more Martin Amis than Andre Brink, Irvin Welsh than JM Coetzee. From a cross-section of young South African writers these stories present an immediate vision of life in urban South Africa.
