Synopsis: Skin Tight: Apartheid Literary Culture and its Aftermath traces the responses to the emergent paradigm of South African literary studies from the 1970s onwards. Embedded in the influential critical texts of the field, it claims, are hidden narratives - of land, race, gender, desire and embodiment. This volume explores these submerged dimension's of South African literary history and the influence they continue to exert well into the post-apartheid era. It suggests that significant continuities exist between late-apartheid and post-apartheid literary culture, and positions these against the interpretive horizon of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

About the Author: Louise Bethlehem currently heads the Programme in Cultural Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where she also lectures in the Department of English and holds a research fellowship in the Africa Unit of the Harry S. Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace. She has published widely on South African literature, literary history, postcolonialism and gender theory. Together with Leon de Kock and Sonja Laden, she co-edited the prizewinning volume South Africa in the Global Imaginary , also published in the 'Imagined South Africa' book series. Another volume which she co-edited with Pal Ahluwalia and Ruth Ginio, Violence and Non-Violence in Africa is forthcoming.
