A "Most Anticipated Book of 2019" ―Big Other, Cosmopolitan, Sunday Times (South Africa)
"The violent and fascinating history of South Africa―from colonialism to apartheid, and the recent struggles to come to terms with this past―serves as a rich backdrop for this unsettling, enrapturing novel that brings to mind Roberto Bolano’s 2666... a novel of incredible imagination that gradually unfurls into a wonderfully realized meditation on growing up, heritage, and the effects of technological progress on the world around us."
―Alexander Moran, Booklist
"I think this was one of the best science fiction epics I've read in a while."
―Jacob Hoefer via Goodreads, bookseller at Labyrinth Books
"In this modern coming-of-age tale, Masande Nsthanga... takes us on dystopic journey into the most suprising places, and also on a journey into the human soul haunted by the past, revolted by injustice and hungry for freedom."
―Ioana Danaila, The African Book Review
"Ntshanga has written a wonder of speculative fiction, with much to say about oppression, the onward march of technology and corporations, and the fate of the earth in the hands of human civilization. Grounded in a coming-of-age story and compelled by masterfully deployed elements of both history and science fiction, this novel is in a genre all its own. Triangulum is an astonishing puzzle of a book, one that I immediately wanted to reread in order to marvel at all of the interlocking pieces with a sharper eye."
―Kelsey O'Rourke, Literati Bookstore
"Masande Ntshanga is a wildly talented writer. Get in on his brilliance now so you can claim you always knew he'd be great."
―Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling
"This new genre-bending novel with elements of science fiction covers a period of 40 years past and present in South Africa. In 2040, the South African National Space Agency receives a mysterious package containing a memoir and a set of digital recordings from an unnamed woman who claims the world will end in ten years."
―Layla Haidrani, Cosmopolitan, '32 new books by people of colour to get excited about in 2019'
"An inventive novel."
