In these five connected stories, set in Cape Town’s District 6 in the 70s, the central character is a precocious little girl called Rosa. Through her adventures in the neighbourhood we come to meet and know the District and its many colourful inhabitants – Mamma Zila, Auntie Flowers, Mrs Hood and Uncle Peter – and their confusing, enigmatic lives and all too human quirks. Vividly wriiten from the author’s own experience, these stories explore a society that was created by slavery, exploitation and apartheid to emerge in chaos and anger and confusion as well as a unique harmony and peace.
