Description - Country Of My Skull by Antjie Krog

Antjie Krog has worked in acute engagement with the many voices that arose in and around South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. From the legislative genesis of the Commission, through the testimonies of victims of abuse and violence, and the activities of apartheid's operatives, the appearance of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, former president PW Botha's courthouse press conference, the Commission's meeting with the media on Robben Island early in 1998 - Antjie Krog leads us on an extraordinary odyssey. COUNTRY OF MY SKULL captures the complexity of the truth commission's work in a uniquely personal narrative which is harrowing, illuminating and provocative. Krog's powerful prose lures the reader actively and inventively through a mosaic of insights, impressions and secret themes. Taking us beneath the big movements of the Truth Commission - and beyond- into the very heart of what is means to be a South African today.
