A Thousand Tales Of Johannesburg (used), by Harry Kalmer

A Thousand Tales Of Johannesburg (used), by Harry Kalmer

  • R 12000


Thousand Tales Of Johannesburg is Harry Kalmer's spellbinding ode to Johannesburg and its people.

 

This is the story of Sara, who poses stiffly for a photo with her four children at Turffontein concentration camp in 1901, and of Abraham, who paints the street names on Johannesburg’s kerbs. It is the tale of their grandson Zweig, a young architect who has to leave Johannesburg when he falls in love with the wrong person, and of Marceline, a Congolese mother who flees to the city only to be caught up in a wave of xenophobic violence.

Spanning more than a hundred years, A Thousand Tales Of Johannesburg is a novel that documents and probes the lives of the inhabitants of this incomparable African city – the exiled, those returning from exile, and those who never left
