Imaginings of Sand by Andre Brink

A wonderful, extravagant book; a melting pot in which women's stories, black and white, young and old, marvelous fantasy and harsh political fact meet to create South Africa's answer to Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude.

A narrative counterpoint between two women, two South Africas. Kristien Muller returns from London to her homeland to fulfil a promise. Her grandmother lies on her deathbed unleashing a tumult of myth, legend and brute fact. Confronted by the realities of a land hurtling towards change, Kristien discovers that the present holds its own moments of savagery.

A searing panorama of South Africa's experience, reminiscent in its political & imaginative scope of Marquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude.
