ï¿½Brutally and uncompromisingly honest, Sisonkeï¿½s beautifully crafted storytelling enriches the already extraordinary pool of young African women writers of our time.ï¿½ ―Graï¿½a Machel, widow of former South African president Nelson Mandela
Born in exile, in Zambia, to a guerrilla father and a working mother, Sisonke Msimang is constantly on the move. Her parents, talented and highly educated, travel from Zambia to Kenya and Canada and beyond with their young family. Always the outsider, and against a backdrop of racism and xenophobia, Sisonke develops her keenly perceptive view of the world. In this sparkling account of a young girlï¿½s path to womanhood, Sisonke interweaves her personal story with her political awakening in America and Africa, her euphoria at returning to the new South Africa, and her disillusionment with the new elites. Confidential and reflective, Always Another Country is a search for belonging and identity: a warm and intimate story that will move many readers.
