"Gertrud Strauss's finely crafted stories offer a unique perspective on the volatile and hybrid character of South Africa, past and present. These narratives, which defy the conventional constraints of the short story, employ a range of modes and styles to reflect the sensibility of their protagonists, portray women at different moments of discovery or development. Childhood, girlhood, wifehood, motherhood -- what lies beneath these states is explored, both delicately and doggedly." - from the rear cover.
