The African writer, Yvonne Vera, used to recall that, as a young girl in the cotton fields, the urge to write was so strong that with no pen and paper available she picked up a twig and started to scratch words onto her skin.

Stories in South Africa kept the dream of freedom alive during the colonial and apartheid years; and the tradition of the people and elders of a village meeting under the shade of a tree is based on telling stories as a way of arriving at an understanding.

This rich tradition is brought to life here, by women who write of and from the landscape and its people.

Part of a series showcasing contemporary women writers from around the world.

I loved these short stories! South Africa is a country that is not too familiar to me, so it was especially interesting to get a glimpse of women's lives there. Some stories made me think of them over and over.
