1 - 2 weeks availability
It is never clear to Elizabeth whether the mission principal's cruel revelations of her origins is at the bottom of her mental breakdown, but in the dark loneliness of the Botswanan night, the frightened South African refugee slips in and out of sanity.
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.
