From the Publisher:
Running a 1990s Cape Town travel agency in spite of her private hatred of traveling, Marion shares a complex relationship with an African employee and eschews national politics, until the exposures of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission reveal dark family secrets.
Annotation:
Marion, the owner of a Cape Town travel agency, feels that apartheid and racism are things of the past, and believes she's being very modern when she hires a black woman, Brenda. However, when ugly secrets emerge about Marion's family history, Marion and Brenda take a trip together, and Marion begins to realize how little she knows about her own country. In this intelligent novel, Zoe Wicomb traverses the murky topic of race with finesse.

Praise

"[Zoe] Wicomb deftly explores the ghastly soup of racism in all its unglory--denial, tradition, habit, stupidity, fear--and manages to do so without moralizing or becoming formulaic." - Alison McCulloch 09/03/2006
