Dinaane: Short Stories by South African Women

by Edited by Maggie Davey
£7.99   paperback  Telegram Books (2007)

Dinaane: Short Stories by South African Women by Edited by Maggie Davey The African writer, Yvonne Vera, used to recall that, as a young girl in the cotton fields, the urge to write was so strong that with no pen and paper available she picked up a twig and started to scratch words onto her skin.
 
Stories in South Africa kept the dream of freedom alive during the colonial and apartheid years; and the tradition of the people and elders of a village meeting under the shade of a tree is based on telling stories as a way of arriving at an understanding.
 
This rich tradition is brought to life here, by women who write of and from the landscape and its people.
 
Part of a series showcasing contemporary women writers from around the world.
