This collection of stories explores the lives of South Africans navigating their way through the bewildering emotional landscapes of the cities and townships in the last years of the struggle against minority white rule and in the present.

In the turbulent 1980s, two young women experience tender new love in a climate when any deviance from the struggle is harshly punished; Ma finds that her dignity – centred on her wig – is threatened by a street robbery; and a young lawyer is forced to confront her past when she is sent to record the testimonies of parents whose children have been abused.

Tanya Chan-Sam’s elegant story-telling combines humour, a probing voice and shocking revelations. Tanya Chan-Sam is a South African writer living in Sheffield. She has performed at literature festivals in Sheffield, Cape Town and London. She is a member of Inscribe and was selected for a mentorship award with Apprenticeships in Fiction 2007.
