Jungfrau and other stories
Mary Watson from South Africa won the seventh Caine Prize for African Writing, Africa’s leading literary prize, for Jungfrau, from Moss (Kwela Books, 2004).
“It is a powerfully written narrative that works skilfully through a child’s imagination to suggest a world of insights about familial and social relationships in the new South Africa.” said Dr Nana Wilson-Tagoe. “It is superbly written and does what a short story should do, by leaving spaces around its narrative in which readers can enter again and again.”
