"Charles Mungoshi is one of Southern Africa's leading writers, and this superb collection contains the best of his short stories. In a series of finely observed vignettes, he explores such themes as the conflict between generations and the clash between tradition and ambition, superstition and education, the old ways and the new."
_______________________

I've already read some of Mungoshi's children's stories which I liked very much. So I was interested to see how he deals with more serious topics. Although these vignettes - as they are rightly called by the blurb - concentrate on the "dark side" of human relations they didn't left me with a feeling of total despair. And it's quite amazing how Mungoshi manages to put (psychological) depth into his characters despite the brevity of the texts.

I finally got around to reading this collection of short stories. I'm not a big fan of short stories, I often would like to know much more about the characters and situations presented… this was also true for this collection: I thought there were many interesting stories but I am way too curious to find out more about the individual pieces to be able to truely enjoy the mosaic ;-) I'm curious if the writer has published any longer pieces, I would love to read those!
