About this book
In a remote mountain village in Lesotho, the beautiful Dikosha lives for dancing and for song, setting herself apart from her fellow villagers. Her twin brother, Radisene, works in the lowland capital of Maseru, struggling amid political upheaval to find a life for himself away from the hills. As the years pass, Radisene's fortunes rise and fall in the city, while Dikosha remains in the village, never leaving and never aging. And through it all, the community watches, comments, and passes judgment.
Indigo's Comments
Lesotho is a mountain kingdom entirely surrounded by the territory of South Africa. This book, by one of South Africa's best and most prolific writers, gives a magical-realist take on this little-known country. ?geoff
