Weaving together many ideas about reconciliation after war, this novel introduces characters--mostly artists and activists--who, after the liberation of South Africa, try to understand what they fought for and why. At the center of the story is a South African dance troupe that has recently returned from Chile. Broadening the debate, the members of this group report onviolence against native people on another continent andprovide a parallel that enlarges the South African perspective.
