Un/common Ground

Short fiction about post-Apartheid South Africa touching on urban change, class tensions, family breakdown and other personal and social focal points. Short fiction in South Africa is entering new ground; and these ten short stories provide ample evidence of that. The themes and plots range from the contemporary love relations of men and women to the difficulties of children caught in the dissolution of families; from white supremacist racial murders to utopian societies of the 26th century; from drug-induced hallucinations and trade in human body parts to the problems of creating a new identity for anti-Apartheid activists faced by a radically changed world order.
