David's Story, by Zoe Wicomb
Unfolding in 1991 South Africa, at the moment of Nelson Mandela’s release, this novel explores the underground world of activists, spies, and saboteurs in the liberation movement—a world seldom revealed to outsiders. It also journeys back in time to find the forgotten history of "coloured" people, whose mixed-race heritage is embedded in four centuries of wrenching South African history. The effect is a bold and revisionary work—a moving exploration of the meaning of history, memory, and truth.
