Sample text

He had left Thokoza to talk to a local journalist about the Pulitzer Prize he had won for his shocking picture of a starving child being stalked by a vulture in the Sudan. He had been in two minds about leaving. Joao had advised him to stay, that despite there being a lull, things were sure to cook again. But Kevin was enjoying his new-found status as a celebrity and went anyway. Over a steak lunch in Johannesburg, Kevin recounted his many narrow escapes. After dessert, he told the journalist that there had been a lot of bang-bang that morning in Thokoza, and that he had to return.

It was on a weekend, and they were both drunk. I had not heard the beginning of the argument, but it had been going on for some time - and then he began to hit her. I was frightened and angry, but determined to intervene. To Mladen, this was a threat to his manhood - he would not tolerate being questioned by a ‘pip-squeak’. After much screaming and pushing, I somehow ended up with a butcher’s knife in my hand, warning him that unless he left my mother alone, I would stab him. Even through the drink, he realized that I was serious and backed down.

More importantly, God was going to save her. What I did not know was that my mother knew she was going to die, that her apparent faith in a miracle cure was really for our benefit. The rest of us believed she would pull through. I had recently become as religiously devout as my mother, uncles and aunts. We all prayed day and night, believing the Lord would spare her. Despite all that love and faith, she did die, on a hot summer night. We were all around her bed in the small yellow room. Mladen was reading some photo-romance comic in another room and had to be called to the deathbed.
