In the pressure cooker of 1950s apartheid South Africa, two women meet and their worlds are turned upside down. Yet in a system that divides white from black, black from Asian and women from men, what chance is there for an unexpected love to survive?

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.


'An impressive debut. [Sarif's] story brings together the descriptive power of the novelist with the screenwriter's mastery of dialogue: a overarching vision of a community shackled by race and gender, which also registers the small shocks and struggles of two women at its centre' --The Times

Book Description:

'In the tradition of Vikram Seth, Sarif throws down a literary gauntlet that few writers will be able to pick up'
