Additional Information

Booker-nominated author Achmat Dangor delivers a stunning collection of short stories exploring the impact of the South African apartheid years. A range of characters embark on personal pilgrimages into their past, during which they are forced to confront what happened to them through the Struggle Years. These journeys, both literal and metaphorical, are subtly, memorably rendered by Dangor as he delves beneath the familiar slogans and the acts of sacrifice, beyond the political to the deeply personal – to the ambivalence, the questioning, the wish to forget, to be relieved of the ‘baggage’ of their past. For many of these exiles and travelers, sex becomes the means of escape from the shackles of memory.

'Achmat Dangor speaks of "man's puny attempt to re-imagine life" in literature. With these enlightening, bold stories he reaches in search of discovery of life beyond and below the surface - which is the mark of the real writer, out of reach of the imagination alone. He is that writer.' - Nadine Gormer
