        Bessie Emery Head 6 July 1937 17 April 1986 , though born in South Africa, is usually considered Botswana s most influential writer.Bessie Emery Head was born in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, the child of a wealthy white South African woman and a black servant when interracial relationships were illegal in South Africa It was claimed that her mother was mentally ill so that she could be sent to a quiet location to give birth to Bessie without the neighbours knowing However, the exact circumstances are disputed, and some of Bessie Head s comments, though often quoted as straight autobiography, are in fact from fictionalized settings.In the 1950s and 60s she was a teacher, then a journalist for the South African magazine Drum In 1964 she moved to Botswana then still the Bechuanaland Protectorate as a refugee, having been peripherally involved with Pan African politics It would take 15 years for Head to obtain Botswana citizenship Head settled in Serowe, the largest of Botswana s villages i.e traditional settlements as opposed to settler towns Serowe was famous both for its historical importance, as capital of the Bamangwato people, and for the experimental Swaneng school of Patrick van Rensburg The deposed chief of the Bamangwato, Seretse Khama, was soon to become the first President of independent Botswana.Her early death in 1986 aged 48 from hepatitis came just at the point where she was starting to achieve recognition as a writer and was no longer so desperately poor from

    1. Gradually Bessie Head is becoming my most read author. It all started after the Writers Project of Ghana held its twitter discussion on her book A Question of Power. I had earlier read the book (and two others: A Woman Alone and Maru), even before it was chosen and had had it reviewed on this blog. However, the discussion got me thinking about that woman, her beautiful spirit, her audacious writings, and her sense of humour even in the midst of dire adversity. Thus, I picked three of her books, [...]


    2. A moving story set in apartheid South Africa. Mouse, a young shy woman who never knew her real parents and does not know how to love and be loved is pursued by her colleague journalist, Johnny. Johnny has had several amorous affairs but falls in love with Mouse and proceeds to teach her to love him through brutal methods. With several references to South Africa's laws against interracial relationships, these two, though both black, are committing a bigger taboo though they'll never know.The Card [...]


    3. Leider wurde ich mit Sternenwendeso gar nicht warm. Die Gefühlswelt der Protagonisten war mir unverständlich, der Klappentext nahm zuviel von der Handlung vorweg und wenn ich im Nachwort dieser Ausgabe lese, dass es sich bei der Beziehung von Johnny und Mouse um Bessie Heads Idealvorstellung der Liebe und gleichberechtigten Partnerschaft handelt, frage ich mich, was ich überlesen habe Für mich war Johnny ein Mann, der zwar eine intellektuell ebenbürtige Frau will, diese sich aber bittesch [...]


    4. Los relatos cortos se hacen un tanto confusos, no he conseguido leer ninguno al completo. En cuanto a "The Cardinals", aunque es medianamente interesante, la historia termina estancándose un tanto.


    5. Bessie Head’s The Cardinals explores how love—when laced with inventions of race, nation, and family—constructs a fragmented self that cannot function in apartheid South Africa. As a colored woman, Mouse, a character that is named only by others, is marked by multiple displacements: she is unable to place herself spatially, nationally, racially or genealogically. However, when she finds love, one that mutates into sex and hints at incest, her dispossession within South Africa is complete. [...]


    6. A dark novella about a younger woman journalist and her affair with a powerful, masculine co-worker. There is such a fire emitting from the female protagonist that confuses all the hierarchies in the book. Would love to reread. 9
