The Afrikaans edition of his story collection The Alphabet of Birds (Alfabet van die voëls) was published by Umuzi (Random House Struik) and awarded University of Johannesburg Debut Prize and a South African Literary Award. His English translation of the stories will be published by And Other Stories later this year.
