A Memoir of Exile and Home

5/5 Rating 1 Reviews
RRP  $32.99 $29.75

A moving portrait of the life journey and all the romance, heartache and grief that has helped to make Sisonke Msimang the writer, activist, mother and woman she is today.

Sisonke Msimang was born in exile, the daughter of South African freedom fighters. Always Another Country is the story of a young girl’s path to womanhood - a journey that took her from Africa to America and back again, then on to a new home in Australia.

Frank, fierce and insightful, she reflects candidly on the abuse she suffered as a child, the naive, heady euphoria of returning at last to her parents’ homeland - and her disillusionment with present-day South Africa and its new elites.

Sisonke Msimang is a bold new voice on feminism, race and politics - in her beloved South Africa, in Australia, and around the world.
