The first Corona book to be released in South Africa, Lockdown The Corona Chronicles captures the intense mood of these unprecedented times, through a tapestry of local voices, delivering unique and insightful stories from the Covid-19 front.
Penned by 17 of maverick publisher Melinda Ferguson’s finest authors, Lockdown captures an unprecedented time of panic, pandemic and pandemonium. Just like the virus pounced unannounced, billed as the “fastest book in history ever written by 17 authors in just seven days”, Lockdown has arrived. Birthed on the brink of catastrophe and lost in a viral fog, what better time for a bunch of isolated writers to try and make sense of it all. It’s even hilarious in places.
Billed as the fastest book written by 17 authors in history!
It’s about survival. It’s about stockpiling, it’s about finding the crack of the light in the dark. Hilarious, soul wrenching, it’s one an exhilarating read. In short, it’s Corona-intense.
