9780435045715: The Lovers

The Loverscollects Head's short fiction of the 1960s and 70s, written mainly in Serowe, Botswana, and depicting the lives and loves of African village people pre- and post-independence. An earlier selection called Tales of Tenderness and Power was published in the Heinemann African Writers Series in 1990, but this expanded and updated volume adds many previously unavailable stories collected here for the first time. Anthology favourites like her breakthrough 'The Woman from America' and 'The Prisoner who Wore Glasses' are included, leading up to the first complete text of her much translated title story.

Born in Pietermaritzberg, South Africa in 1937, Bessie Head first came to prominence as a columnist on Johannesburg’s The Golden City Post. To escape banning under the apartheid system, she was obliged to leave her country of birth on an exit permit, living from 1964 as a refugee in British Bechuanaland, soon to achieve independence as Botswana. As the bulk of the short stories were being written there, she became noted as the pioneer voice of a uniquely African woman, dealing with hitherto undescribed private affairs in village communities. She died in 1986, aged just forty-nine.
