A tapestry of suffering, joy, transcendence…a journey of guilt and hope…In these remarkable short stories by native South African Tony Eprile, men and women play out dramas that echo the tumultuous din of their homeland. With a particular emphasis on exiles whether expatriates or those people alienated in their own country these stories examine a nation breaking apart along the fault lines of race, belief, and circumstance. With this collection, Mr. Eprile emerges as a brilliant compassionate chronicler of one of the most troubled and troubling landscapes of our world. The Pittsburg Courier wrote Eprile captures the innocence of childhood, the complexity of Black/white friendship, the conflicting sentiments of expatriates, liberal sacrifice, and hope. And, David Bradley, author of The Chaneysville Incident said "More than a well-written and dramatic set of stories but a remarkable panorama of South Africa and its several peoples. Our impulse is to see South Africa as a conflict; Eprile manages to present it as an organism …This book does what all books should do, personalize and humanize those who have been depersonalized and dehumanized. It is both a fine work of art and a fine work of politics.
