THIS story involves a slow meditation on the nature of inherited guilt. It tells the story of Zara Black, a Capetonian, in New Jersey on a post-doctoral grant researching the ancient scrolls of Timbuktu.
This distance from her home allows her to consider her family’s history, its complexity of cultural inheritance, and in particular the two betrayals of her grandfather and father.
