THE BOOK: A narrative counterpoint between two women, two South Africas.
Kristien Muller returns from London to her homeland to fulfil a promise.
Her grandmother lies on her deathbed unleashing a turmult of myth, legend and brute fact.
Confronted by the realities of a land hurtling towards change, Kristien discovers that the present holds its own moments of savagery.
A searing panorama of South Africa's experience, reminiscent in its political & imaginative scope of Marquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude.
