Another Year in Africa
Rose Zwi
Instant Download

They came from the stetl to a new land, to a new life. Another year in Africa, they said, another year in exile. Old bonds break as they adjust from the old world of pogroms to their new life in Africa. Six-year-old Ruth is haunted by memories of tragedy and persecution that are not even hers. Award-winning author, Rose Zwi, evokes with tenderness the 1930s and 40s with a tale of loss of innocence alongside the stirrings of Apartheid.

Write a review.

A tender, richly detailed and engrossing novel.

Elaine Lindsay, The Year's Best Books, Australian 1995
...Through a tidy triptych of three men and their families, Zwi presents the immigrant Jews' struggles to root themselves in their adopted home... she finds a deft, tender voice in recounting the personal, familial events, capturing the pathos if not the turbulence of this unique chapter in South African Jewish history.
