When Morning Comes

by Arushi Raina
£6.50   paperback  Tradewind Books (2016)

When Morning Comes by Arushi Raina It’s 1976 in South Africa.
 
Written from the points-of-view of four young people living in Johannesburg and its black township, Soweto — Zanele, a black female student organizer, Meena, of South Asian background working at her father’s shop, Jack, an Oxford-bound white student, and Thabo, a teen gang-member or tsotsi — this book explores the roots of the Soweto Uprising and the edifice of Apartheid in a South Africa about to explode.
 
In the black township of Soweto, Zanele, who also works as a nightclub singer, is plotting against the apartheid government. The police can’t know. Her mother and sister can’t know. No one can know.
 
On the affluent white side of town, Jack Craven plans to spend the last days of his break before university burning miles on his beat up Mustang, and crashing other people’s parties.
 
Their chance meeting changes everything.
 
Already a chain of events are in motion; a failed plot, a murdered teacher, a powerful police agent with a vendetta, and a secret network of students across the township. The students will rise. And there will be violence when morning comes.
 
Introducing readers to a remarkable young literary talent, When Morning Comes offers an impeccably researched and vivid snapshot of South African society on the eve of the uprising that changed it forever.
