Reviews for The Eternal Audience Of One

“…if you’re looking for an intelligent escape-and-rescue literary experience, The Eternal Audience of One is your book. It’s an intricate interrogation of exile, homesickness and the alienation of immigrant lives. It’s also a brilliant postmodern take on how the arts—writing and music in particular—can deliver a troubled mind into gathering and holding all that our senses, by experience, have transmuted into consciousness, which, in a nutshell, is the greater purpose of our lives in this world. In this book, southern Africa has thrown its hat into the millennial fiction ring in a manner that is on par with its international peers. We have in Rémy Ngamije a rising literary star to watch.”
—Mphuthumi Ntabeni, author of The Broken River Tent, for The Johannesburg Review Of Books, October, 2019.
