Críticas

"Post-apartheid South Africa is indeed a new world. . . . With this novel, Wicomb proves a keen guide." --The New York Times
"Delectable. . . . Wicomb's prose is as delightful and satisfying in its culmination as watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean." --Christian Science Monitor
"[A] thoughtful, poetic novel." --The Times (London)
"Deep and subtle. . . . This tight, dense novel gives complex history a human face." --Kirkus

Descripción del producto

By the Windham Campbell Prize winner

Set in a beautifully rendered 1990s Cape Town, Zoë Wicomb’s celebrated novel revolves around Marion Campbell, who runs a travel agency but hates traveling, and who, in post-apartheid society, must negotiate the complexities of a knotty relationship with Brenda, her first black employee. As Alison McCulloch noted in the New York Times, "Wicomb deftly explores the ghastly soup of racism in all its unglory—denial, tradition, habit, stupidity, fear—and manages to do so without moralizing or becoming formulaic."

Caught in the narrow world of private interests and self-advancement, Marion eschews national politics until the Truth and Reconciliation Commission throws up information that brings into question not only her family’s past but her identity and her rightful place in contemporary South African society. "Stylistically nuanced and psychologically astute" (Kirkus), Playing in the Light is as powerful in its depiction of Marion's personal journey as it is in its depiction of South Africa's bizarre, brutal history.

This book is very boring and you need to have a high level of English to enjoy the reading because there are a lot of descriptions. I give up.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Insight into South African relationships 15 de enero de 2013
Por Philippa Beckerling - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
Zoe Wicomb has recreated some characters in this book that will always stay with me. She has a rare talent for reproducing voice, from the alienated Afrikaner, Marion, to a random woman on a train in the UK, and of course, her main character, the so-called Coloured, Brenda. Her characters are alive, and they make sense. Her subject is race - what else could it be, but she does it with an unusual subtlety and skill. She looks in depth at the consequences of the separation of racial groups in the early years of apartheid, focusing on a family who choose to 'go for white', and she shows how moving away from their families and old lives brings nothing but fear, lies and denial of everything that matters. She shows how relative poverty is, but there are no cliches here. It is one of the best books on South Africa I have read. Some of her sentences have a cadence and poetry that remind me of J.M.Coetzee, but unlike Coetzee, she portrays ordinary human relationships in great emotional depth.
My only disappointment was with the abrupt and I thought unconvincing ending - it was as though she had just had enough.

The complexities of race and family history are the background to this short novel which gives great insight into post Apartheid South Africa. Wicomb also spikes the book beautifully with bits of Afrikaans and local culture.

Life isn't always what you think it is. Wish Zoe had been able to bet beyond herself and see each day for the gift it is.
