198 x 128 mm
Rose Zwi’s stories embrace people from different countries and cultures drawn together by a common humanity. Her characters range from a political activist who is house-arrested, to the child of immigrant parents caught between two cultures; from a city-educated woman returning to the arid homeland of her tribal grandfather, to a Rabbi and his wife in an East European shtetl; from a solitary dingo in a small Australian town, pursued to its inevitable end to a farmer obsessed with returning his land to its natural state. Rose Zwi enchants the reader in her struggle to arrive at the truth of a situation. With a delicate but ironic touch, leavened with gentle humour, the award-winning author of Another Year in Africa, Safe Houses and Last Walk in Naryshkin Park opens our eyes to the world around us and captures our hearts.
