Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Indian immigration to South Africa, Rajendra Chetty's The Vintage Book of South African Indian writing is an anthology of extraordinary range and vigour, as moving and diverse as the people and land that inspired it. It showcases the rich texture and quality of a growing collective oeuvre, a body of literature full of imagination and impassioned lyricism - it is like an unstoppable assault on the senses, the tragic-comedy of the early life of the immigrants, the excitement of new themes, the emotions, the imagination and the spirit of new writers who have emerged on the literary landscape. The Vintage Book of South African Indian Writing includes contemporary writers as well as writings of indenture going back 150 years.
The book includes works by: Imraan Coovadia, Ronnie Govender, Jayapraga Reddy, Ahmed Essop, Farida Karodia, Aziz Hassim, Ashraf Jamal, Agnes Sam, Achmat Dangor, Shunna Pillary, Sherin Ahmed, Neela Govender, Fatima Meer, Muthal Naidoo, Jay Naidoo, Ashwin Desai, Goolam Vahed, Sumaya Lee, Kriben Pillay, Raazamah Pillay, Prabha Moodely, Prithiraj Dullay, Reshma Sookrajh, Mariam Akabor, Ansuyah Singh, Darryl David, Sita Gandhi, Gonarathnam Naidoo, Mohambry Naicker, Phyllis Naidoo, Ismail Meer, Ahmed Kathrada, Kader Asmal, Zarina Maharaj, Sam Ramsamy, Indres Naidoo, Mac Maharaj, Pregs Govender, Kogi Singh, Zuleikha Mayat, Devi Rajab, Imtiaz Cajee, Devarakshanam Govender and Jayaseelan Naidoo.
