Editorial Reviews

Reviews: Why Don't You Carve Other AnimalsWhy Don't You Carve Other AnimalsRunner-up for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Africa Region, 1993"A subtle writer... [This book] radiates the same commitment as The Grass Is Singing, Doris Lessing's first novel, which forty years ago also reported unbridgeable boundaries in Southern Africa." ?The Toronto Review"Caught between memory and dreaming, the hopeful exile weaves a comforting performance out of a tale of agony."
