Publisher Comments:

"Karodia has taken the writer's role to new heights in South Africa". — Southern African Review of Books<P>With the end of apartheid, a new constitution, and a new hope for the future of the country, ordinary South Africans pick up the threads of their ordinary day-to-day lives. In these stories Karodia explores lives and relationships in the new South Africa from the perspectives of Indian, African and European characters. Many of the problems and situations of her people are timeless. An African woman subsisting in poverty awaits with anxiety the arrival of her daughter from a neighbouring town; an elderly Indian couple try, to great disappointment, to marry off their recently arrived daughter from England; a South African of Dutch descent returns after years in exile to find a changed society.
