A new Youtube page is bringing some of Southern Africa’s most beloved literary titles to life with audio transcriptions that make reading easy and fun.

The Audio Book Masters South Africa page has uploaded free-to-stream versions of classics from the country, including a retelling of the immense “Indaba, My Children” by celebrated folklorist Credo Mutwa, along with many others.

Recently added is “Life” –– a short story by Bessie Head that is lovingly retold by a deep resonant voice.

“From the famous writer of the critically acclaimed novel ‘Maru’, we bring you a short story by Bessie Head. She tells a story of Life’s return to the beginning, which eventually became Life’s end. Other themes include infidelity, the urban vs rural divide still present in SA today, and the women’s claim to be in the midst of social judgment,” the team behind the project explains.
