SA letters has found a fresh, new voice. Rosemary Smith’s memoir, Swimming with Cobras (Modjaji Books) covers just over 30 years of a very active life, from her arrival in Grahamstown as wife of a newly appointed English lecturer, to her “retirement” in 1999. This rich and interesting narrative is several things at once. Most obviously it is record of years of dedicated service for the Grahamstown Area District Relief Association and the Black Sash in Grahamstown.
It records how the shifts in the national political arena – from the Soweto uprising to the repression of the mid-80s to the beginnings of the thaw in the late 80s – were registered at the local level.
