A Change of Tongue
In times of fundamental change, people tend to find a space, lose it and the find another space as life and the world transform around them. What does this metamorphosis entail and in what ways are we affected by it? How do we live through it and what may we become on our journey toward each other, particularly when the space and places form which we depart are ‚€“ at least on the surface ‚€“ so vastly different?
Ranging freely and often wittily across many terrains, this brave book by one of South Africa‚€™s foremost writers and poets provides a unique and compelling discourse on living creatively in Africa today
