Mother to Mother

In August 1993, Fulbright scholar Amy Biehl was killed in Cape Town by a group of black youths incited by an upsurge in 'anti-white' sloganeering. She died just a few metres away from Sindiwe Magona's house. One of the boys held responsible for the killing was her neighbour's son. Mother to Mother takes the form of an epistle to Amy Biehl's mother. Sindiwe Magona imagines how easily it might have been her own son caught up in the violence of that day - she writes about lives in a colonised society that not only allowed, but also perpetuated violence against women and impoverished black South Africans. The result is not an apology for murder, but an exquisitely written exploration of the lives of ordinary people during the apartheid years

Sindiwe Magona was born in a village in the Eatern Cape and grew up in Gugulethu, a township outside Cape Town. She has worked as a domestic worker, a hawker, a primary school teacher, a writer, a motivational speaker, and an Information Officer at the United Nations in New York. She is the author of more than one hundred books.
