Southern Crosses: An African Ghost Story, written by DA Winstead and self-published in 2012, brings together two women—a black American, and a South African of mixed race. Both have grown up in rural and racially oppressive environments and both have challenges to contend with in their adulthood. But they help each other in different ways and develop a remarkable and enduring friendship along the way. The story is rich in historical and cultural detail on the black American past, and on pre and post-Apartheid South Africa. It’s also a skillful insight into the possible dynamics and intrigues within foreign offices.
