Waiting for Leila by Achmat Dangor( Book )

Samad's search for Leila is an odyssey through a world where the jackhammers are destroying more than bricks and mortar: they are tearing into the souls of people, brutalising them, leaving them with hearts as empty as the shop windows in Hanover Street. Waiting for Leila is a powerful indictment of a way of life to which so many were condemned; but despite this, as Samad says: 'Our ghosts are ineradicable.'

Strange pilgrimages : short stories by Achmat Dangor( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 24 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
