About Author

Born in South Africa, Bessie Head, had a traumatic life and she drew heavily upon her experiences for her novels. Her first novel, "When Rain Clouds Gather" grew out of her experience as a refugee, and was followed by "Maru" and "A Question of Power" (1973). In 1977 she published "The Collector of Treasure"s, a book of short stories exploring the position of women in Africa. Bessie Head died in Serowe, Botswana in 1986, aged only 49.
