Country of My Skull (used), by Antjie Krog
For more than two years Antjie Krog worked in acute engagement with the many voices that arose in and around South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. From the legislative genesis of the Commission, through the testimonies of victims of abuse and violence, and the activities of apartheid's operatives, the appearance of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, former President PW Botha's courthouse press conference, the Commission's meeting with the media in Robben Island early in 1998 - this award-winning poet leads us on an extraordinary odyssey. "Country of my skull" captures the complexity of the Truth Commission's work in a uniquely personal narrative which is harrowing, illuminating and provocative.
