TWENTY-FOUR different writers each choose an hour of the day and a different part of the world as the setting for their text. These are all writers who have either grown up in South Africa or are resident here.
The brief given them by editor Louis Greenberg was to “write about a specific interaction, place or object in a foreign city that makes you reflect on your South African home”.
Some of the writers have chosen a fictional solution to the demands of the brief (others completely ignore it). Some are successful in themselves as stories but shed little light on “home” like (Zukiswa Wanner’s tale of assassination in Nairobi, and Ted Botha’s Kinky Friedmanesque vignette of an LA private eye).
