In the Spirit of McPhineas Lata and Other Stories (by Lauri Kubuitsile)
In many of these stories, there is a sense that things are not as they seem: a woman's husband-to-be has a questionable past and a voluptuous stranger's beauty belies her malevolence. Characters are shaped by the particular challenges of their context - a young pregnant Mosarwa girl is forced to make a terrible decision and the barren wife of a wealthy Gaborone man is made to see an old woman with supposed powers of fertility. Atmospheric and evocative, these stories will entertain and transport you to the hot, dusty heart of Botswana.
