About the Author

Zoe Wicomb was born in South Africa in 1948 and returned in 1991, after twenty years of voluntary exile, to teach at the University of the Western Cape.

"Post-apartheid South Africa is indeed a new world. . . . With this novel, Wicomb proves a keen guide."
-New York Times

"Delectable. . . . Wicomb's prose is as delightful and satisfying in its culmination as watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean."
-Christian Science Monitor

"[A] thoughtful, poetic novel."
-The Times (London)

"Deep and subtle. . . . This tight, dense novel gives complex history a human face."
