Some of Mr. Thapelo’s articles have been published in newspapers, magazines and peer-reviewed journals. “Season of Thunder” is his debut novel.
Volume I of “Seasons of Thunder,” shares the life of Batjibilibili and introduces readers to indecent proposals, love trysts, and the growth in spite of it all as an emerging female and community leader. While Batjibilibili loves her husband, Ntungamili (a recluse poet consumed with contemplative inertia and angst); she spends most of her time with Satjilombe, a Member of Parliament and senior minister in the Office of the President. She does not love the politician. She feels dirty and disgusted after making love to him. The story of her life is unraveled against the bedrock of four successive political rulers throughout the three volumes, which comprise “Seasons of Thunder.”
