About this title


Presenting an absorbing array of South African tales, this remarkable collection is headed by "Jambula Tree," winner of the 8th Annual Caine Prize—Africa’s most prestigious literary accolade for a short story published in English. Complemented by the short-listed entries carefully selected by the Caine Prize judges, this collaboration of unique talent promotes voices as spiritual and distinct as the South African landscape itself. With a rich and honest narrative, these refreshingly contemporary stories hum with the multiplicity of a pan-African reality, providing raw and deeply affecting perspectives into a unique and ancient culture. 

About the Author:

Caine Prize Judges award the Caine Prize to a work (or a short story) by an African writer published in English, whether in Africa or elsewhere. The 2008 judges included Jude Kelly, the artistic director of the Southbank Centre; Mark McMorris, a Jamaican poet and a professor of English; Hisham Matar, the Libyan author of In the Country of Men; Hannah Pool, an Eritrean-born journalist for the Guardian; and Jonty Driver, a South African poet, novelist, and lecturer.
