"Far and Beyon'" tells the story of Mara, a mother of four in a community that relies on magic to cure AIDS. But this is modern day Botswana in Southern Africa and more and more young people, including Mara's children Stan and Mosa, are challenging the old ways, especially the heavily divided structure of African society.
While Unity has written a political novel dealing with the frightening health issues and the position of women in modern Africa, she has also created a work of remarkable fiction that is not in the least didactic.
A contemporary novel which provides a fascinating insight into modern African life. Highly recommended for those readers who want depth as well as lyrically writing.
It opens your eyes not only to the challenges brought about by growing up in modern day Southern Africa but also to the effects of the AIDS pandemic on a personal level. This is a book where a lot of young Africans will see a little bit of themselves in the different characters, from Mosa to Mara and Stan.
The book is written with passion and style.
This book, written by an African woman who is a judge at the high court of Botswana, is a monument for the strength of African woman: the way in which they run society behind the scenes and in which they have to cope with sexism in order to survive. It is also a strong plea for openness about HIV/AIDS. And most important of all: there is an engrossing story to get the message across.
