Summary
A slave woman is the only survivor of a failed expedition into the depths of Southern Africa. She shelters in the hollow trunk of a baobab tree where she relives her earlier existence in a state of increasing isolation. We are the sole witnesses to her moving history: her capture as a young child, her life in a harbor city on the eastern coast as servant to different masters, her journey with her last owner and protector, and her life in the baobab tree. A stunning translation by Nobel Prize winner J. M. Coetzee of a masterful work of fiction by one of the greatest living writers in Afrikaans. From the Trade Paperback edition
