Winner of the Sanlam Literary Award for Best Unpublished Novel
In a remote mountain village, the beautiful Dikosha lives for dancing and for song. Her twin brother, Radisene, works in the lowland capital of Maseru, struggling amid political upheaval to find a life for himself away from the hills.
As the years pass, Radisene's fortunes rise and fall in the city, while Dikosha remains in the village, never leaving and never aging. And through it all, the community watches, comments, and passes judgment. From one of world literature's most vivid voices, this is a story of love, magic, and betrayal in the misty mountain country of Lesotho.
