Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Including short stories from some of South Africas best and most renowned writers (Nadine Gordimer, J.M. Coetzee, and Alan Paton, to name only a few), this collection accompanies readers to a recent, but altogether different South Africa, reflecting perspectives of both the oppressed and the oppressors. Some of the stories are previously unpublished, but all of them constitute examples of the most imaginative and provocative South African writing, from many disparate perspectives.

Synopsis:

Featuring 18 contemporary short stories by South Africa's best writers, this work takes readers on a journey through the country's literary landscape, exploring Africa's most popular travel destination as no travel guide can.
