In Court PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

In Court free pdf "In Court" brings together stories written over a span of many years. Some stories draw on feelings of exile and homesickness in America, some on friendships with others from South Africa, some on events during visits back. On the surface, some deal only with Americans. All probe dislocation and imposed identity. They reach out to readers who feel out of place or recall being in place somewhere else.

About Rose Moss

South African born author, Rose Moss, emigrated to the USA in 1964. Her novel, The Terrorist, featured by the New Fiction Society, focuses on a man who puts a bomb in the main Johannesburg train station to protest apartheid. The novel was re-named The Schoolmaster in South Africa - as The Terrorist it would have been banned unread. Moss returned to South Africa in 1988 to observe some of the Delmas Treason Trial. In 1990, she published a non-fiction book, Shouting at the Crocodile, about its two leading defendants and the short story, "In Court". South Africa figures in much of her other writing. Her short story "Exile" won a Quill Prize and her novel, The Family Reunion, was short-listed for a National Book Award in the United States. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts and teaches Creative Writing at Harvard.
