Coming on strong: Writing by Namibian women
A collection of women's writings from Namibia , including pieces by newly literate adults, reveals previously untapped talent. Most of these authors have never thought of themselves as writers, but their writing outshines that of many who lay claim to that title.
Through poetry, short fiction and essays, this collection expands the telling of the Namibian experience. It deals with particular instances of Namibian history such as the war in the northern parts of the country, and the experience of exile. It deals with the universal - childhood, pregnancy, relationships. And it deals with the spectre that always haunts Namibias- drought.
