Elsa Joubert, a well-known and celebrated author in South Africa, tells the story of her younger years growing up as a white South African during the first half of the twentieth century. This was before the Afrikaner National Party took over leadership of the country and installed the laws of apartheid. She went on to win worldwide acclaim in the early 1980’s for her best-seller novel about a Xhosa woman, Poppie, who experienced inordinate suffering under the subjugation of apartheid and its consequences (Poppie Nongena, 1980). The novel caused a stir not only amongst white South Africans but worldwide in translation because it was the first novel to tell the story of an African woman.
