Little does she be aware of that the most important to unravelling her previous lies in an exposing novella the ocean of clever bugs which her enigmatic ex, Ralph, released lower than a pseudonym after he did the soiled and disappeared on her.

“Zany, richly textured and bizarrely plausible, Westby-Nunn’s novel activates the reader to imagine afresh approximately what it's to dedicate a criminal offense opposed to one other individual. The three-part narrative constitution of the ocean of clever bugs is galvanized. A consummate debut.”
– Jane Rosenthal, Mail & Guardian

With its self-conscious research of story-craft, the ocean of clever bugs finally reads as an idiosyncratic South African gothic novel; it encompasses the tales we inform ourselves in an effort to make experience of the playing cards lifestyles bargains out to us. the radical serves as a well timed reminder of an statement as soon as made through Michel de Montaigne, that “[n]othing fixes a specific thing so intensely within the reminiscence because the desire to overlook it”. analyzing Westby-Nunn’s debut is a haunting, lucrative event that few will forget.
- Jonathan Amid, Slipnet
