Description:
Zoe Wicomb's complex and deeply evocative fiction is among the most distinguished recent works of South African women's literature. It is also among the only works of fiction to explore the experience of "Coloured" citizens in apartheid-era South Africa, whose mixed heritage traps them, as Bharati Mukherjee wrote in the New York Times, "in the racial crucible of their country.

"Wicomb deserves a wide American audience, on a part with Nadine Gordimer and J.M.Coetzee." - "Wall St. Journal"

Wicomb is a gifted writer, and her compressed narratives work like brilliant splinters in the mind, suggesting a rich rhythm and shape."-"Seattle Times"

" Wicomb's] prose is vigorous, textured, lyrical. . . . She] is a sophisticated storyteller who combines the open-endedness of contemporary fiction with the force of autobiography and the simplicity of family stories."-Bharati Mukherjee, "New York Times Book Review"

For course use in: African literature, African studies, growing up female, world literature, women's studies
