Rebecca Davis

Rebecca Davis studied at Rhodes University and Oxford before working in lexicography at the Oxford English Dictionary. After deciding she’d rather make up words than define them, she returned to South Africa in 2011 to write for the Daily Maverick. Her first book, Best White and Other Anxious Delusions, was published in 2015. Her latest book, Self-Helpless, was published in 2018.
