David Philip publishes, 1989
Soft cover, 162 pages
An eagerly awaited new collection from South Africa's best-known black woman novelist - stories that spring from her experiences of Sophia town, of Lesotho and of Soweto where she now lives. They breath the spirit, anger, humanity, humor and fire of people of these communities, and focus in particular on the hard-pressed lives of black women.
