Six feet of the country
Seven stories from South Africa that instil the essence of what has happened in that country in recent years, through people and landscapes intensely and evocatively drawn. The title story tells of a black man who has travelled hundreds of miles from his native Rhodesia to start a new life in Johannesburg, where there is the promise of work. Tragically, however, he dies, as do many others, who struggle under the harsh circumstances. The man's family and people plan to provide a proper burial, but their meagre means cannot provide a proper grave - "six feet of country."
