Rosa's District 6
|In Cape Town’s
District 6, despite the brutality of apartheid laws, the
lives of people go on. In these five connected stories, the
central character is a precocious little girl called Rosa.
Through her adventures in the neighbourhood we come to meet
and know the District and its many colourful
inhabitants--including Mamma Zila, Auntie Flowers, Mrs Hood
and Uncle Peter--and their confusing, enigmatic lives, and
all too human quirks.
"Maart observes the human costs of apartheid and homophobia with a keen eye."
