About the Author:

Born in South Africa, Bessie Head, had a traumatic life and she drew heavily upon her experiences for her novels. Her first novel, When Rain Clouds Gather grew out of her experience as a refugee, and was followed by Maru and A Question of Power (1973). In 1977 she published The Collector of Treasures, a book of short stories exploring the position of women in Africa.


Bessie Head died in Serowe, Botswana in 1986, aged only 49.

Review:

?Head brilliantly develops ascending degrees of personal isolation, and is very moving when she describes abating pain.?-The Sunday Times
