Soli Philander’s - Nice Coat

Soli Philander's 'Nice Coat' is about - as he puts it - his Cape Town. Born out of a desire for a narrative about Cape Town - the place of his birth, his youth, his heart - that didn't serve a political agenda, wasn't an exercise in attracting tourists, and did not disregard the daily, stark realities so many Capetonians in surviving must embrace.
