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."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note 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.
