Author: Jennifer Wenzel
Publisher: Chicago ; London : University of Chicago Press, 2009.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Taking the Xhosa cattle killing as her focus, Wenzel offers something paradoxical: a new, anti-canonical canon of South African writing. Concerned with historical and literary 'failures', this work is a reflection on the fragmentary and spectral nature of echoes, influences, and prophecies.
