Description: The Memory of Birds in Times of Revolution is a collection of searing new essays by the acclaimed author of Return to Paradise and The True Confessions of an Albino Terrorist. Essaying his homeland, Africa, at the end of the twentieth century, Breyten Breytenbach offers penetrating insights on a variety of topics: the release of Nelson Mandela from prison ("Nelson Mandela is Free!"); the early days of Mandela's presidency and its failures (the controversial "Open Letter to Nelson Mandela"); the geography of the writer's imagination ("Tortoise Steps"); death as the mother of beauty ("Cadavre Exquis"); the true meaning of reconciliation and reform after apartheid ("Fragments from a Growing Awareness of Unfinished Truths"); and much more.
