In a Cape Town suburb, five women gather every Friday night to discuss their writing. Isabel, returning home, where the writing circle is to meet, is attacked in her car at gunpoint and raped. But she manages to turn the gun on her attacker and shoot him. In coping with the killing, the disposal of the body, and the breakdown and recovery of Isabel, we earn about the intersecting personal lives of the women - Isabel, Carmen, Jazz, Beauty, and Amina, all successful professionals in today's South Africa. And when the body is discovered, and the identity of the attacker revealed, all their stereotypes fall away. Narrated by all five women in their individual styles, The Writing Circle is a wholly engaging, highly suspenseful novel that also hold up a mirror to the violence in women's lives.
