Gardening at Night

Author(s): Diane Awerbuck


Follows the unfolding of a young girl's life through a childhood filled with silences, through adolescence and young womanhood. This work is about how much people are the total of their longings, how high drama can also be low comedy. It probes how much of the old century a girl should take with her into the new one.

Product Information

A brilliant and uncompromising new voice in fiction from South Africa.

"Feisty and funky and funny... a remarkable reading adventure. This is a South Africa the international reader has not yet seen: the wood of smallness and ordinariness and quirkiness of everyday life hidden behind the trees of politics."
--Andre Brink

Diane Awerbuck teaches high school English and History to Cape Town schoolgirls. She knows that someday she will have to go back to Kimberley.
