Caught up in the narrow world of private interests and self-advancement, Marion eschews national politics until the exposures of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission lead to the discovery of a skeleton in the family cupboard. While her aging father is unable and unwilling to supply the truth, Marions young employee becomes implicated in the piecing together of Marions past, leading to a defining transformation and widening of Marions world.In this impeccably wrought new work, the acclaimed author of You Cant Get Lost in Cape Town provides wisdom and insight about the new South Africa and about people everywhere.
