The Eye of the Moon
Judith Barrington describes The Eye of the Moon as "dense with fragrance, eroticism, and the poetry of recalled passion." This memoir is at once an exploration of love, identity and heartbreak against the backdrop of the changing political face of southern Africa, and a critique of life in North America through the eyes of a young immigrant. It is a poetic story about loving and forgiving- men, and women, and continents. It is ultimately also about the undoing of cliches and fixed perceptions of the world.
