Including short stories from some of South Africa's best and most renowned writers (Nadine Gordimer, J.M. Coetzee, and Alan Paton, to name only a few), this collection accompanies readers to a recent, but altogether different South Africa, reflecting perspectives of both the oppressed and the oppressors. Some of the stories are previously unpublished, but all of them constitute examples of the most imaginative and provocative South African writing, from many disparate perspectives.
Isabel Balseiro is the Alexander and Adelaide Hixon Professor of Humanities at Harvey Mudd College, in Claremont, California. Her publications on South Africa include To Change seels: Film and Film Culture in South Africa and the anthology Running Towards Us: New Writing from South Africa.

One of his short stories, written in Spanish, won second prize in Spain's Hucha de Oro, which carries the world's largest prize for a single piece of short fiction. An independent scholar, writer, and translator, he received his Ph.D. from Cambridge.
