Do you love reading? Of course you do! Even better when it’s free!
We at FQ have a grand giveaway of When Rain Clouds Gather & Maru by South African writer Bessie Head, from the wonderful folks at Virago Modern Classics.
Bessie Head (1937-1986) was one of Africa’s most prominent writers. She was born in South Africa but spent much of her life in Botswana; her works were mostly inspired by her own traumatic life experiences as an outcast in Apartheid South African society.
When Rain Clouds Gather follows the story of Makehaya, a young runaway from South Africa, while Maru is the tale of a young orphan from a despised tribe, who has been brought up by missionaries and has to find her place in the world.
