Poet and photographer René Bohnen writes the following about Pravasan Pillay's Chatsworth: 'I have just finished reading this. Such clean writing! Sober, unsentimental windows open onto the lives of characters who negotiate life and leave us wondering if they have slipped through the cracks or not. Bleak, but not depressing - a fascinating depiction of very ordinary days in a Chatsworth that seems timeless. Quiet portraits with lively and true dialogue, so familar the vernacular. Well done, Pravasan and Dye Hard Press.'
