    1. This anthology (which I haven't finished yet) includes memoirs, poems and extracts from novels. I was moved last night to read a passage from K Sello Duiker's novel The Quiet Silence of Dreams. It is beautiful written and insightful, and reminded me yet again what a tragedy it is that he took his own life a few years ago. A huge loss for South African literature.
