In Hardly Working: A Travel Memoir of Sorts, Zukiswa Wanner faces the challenges of travelling by road and crossing several borders while being a Zambian-born South African who lives in Kenya but her irreverent humour and uncanny ability to connect and make friends wherever she goes, serves her well.

2016 was a year she wanted to celebrate in style, and when her son came home and told her about yet another international school trip, an idea began to form. Why not take a road trip through several countries to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the publication of her debut novel, The Madams, with a book tour as well as her fortieth birthday. Best of all, she would bond with her partner and son before her writing took her off to Europe for months.

With this sixth book, Wanner shows off an Africa that we rarely see. Throughout the journey she reflects on what it means to be a writer in a world that isn’t quite sure what it is that she does while discovering that people are hungry for more African stories but access is a big challenge.
