Dinaane: Short Stories by Women from South Africa

Publisher: Telegram

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.

The rich tradition of storytelling is brought to life here, by women who write of and from the landscape and its people.
