A short story by the author of Imagine: Africa! about a gorgeous yet mysterious woman who takes on many roles. 

Author Lidia Theron sums it up when she says, "It took me less than an hour to read, but it lingered in my mind for much longer. Does the story endeavour to be a simple story, where a writer observes life at a street café in a little seaside village? But no, it cuts far deeper; I had to think and rethink this story. Why does Vanessa seem to be so familiar? I had to read it again. Then I knew, I know this story so well because it is the story of my own life, with me, the author. In the end it was so sad - I could not only feel the pathos in Vanessa, I could also identify with the hopelessness in the author.
