In 2013, Tlhabi won the Alan Paton Award for her book, Endings and Beginnings. The book describes Tlhabi's relationship with a notorious gangster as she was growing up, after the death of her father. Tlhabi claims that she changed the names of the characters, but the mother of a gangster of the same name claims that the names are accurate but is disputing some of the facts in the book.
