by Marcelle du Toit
This book contains two novellas by Marcelle du Toit that offer contrasting southern African scenarios: one set in Hillbrow, being a tale of Rastas, Jewish neurosis, jazz fiends, hallucinations and the contradictions African patriarchy creates for independent black women; the second is set in a ‘mythical’ African state in the post-liberation period when the corruption of power shows its dirty hand and forces different elements to reconsider their allegiances.
