Imaginings of Sand

Andre Brink

To get the most out of this book keep track of the way the characters in Ouma's myth-like stories connect with the main plot.

Extract

It is already a week since I arrived. So much has happened, nothing has happened. An existence in suspense somehow, in which, curiously, Ouma's stories seem almost more real than the events surrounding me - even though I'm not altogether sure why she has felt this urgency to tell all before she dies.
