Strange pilgrimages : short stories by Achmat Dangor( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
"Central to much of this are 'the struggle years'. This has seen some sent into exile, but few ever forget their 'South Africanness', for the pull of 'nostalgia' is an ever-present force. Some question the value of what they did during those years, others see it in a rather ambivalent light, while others want to move on, want to be relieved of the 'baggage' of their past. For many of them, sex becomes the means of escape from the shackles of memory. This is not just another encomium to the 'struggle' years; instead, what makes this book stand out is the author's unusual and illuminating take on that period of our history. It is not viewed, then, in a way we've become accustomed to, but from a different perspective. Additionally, each story is decidedly 'relevant' and, most importantly, all make for easy and engrossing reading." -- Publisher's note
