Product Description

In the pressure cooker of 1950s apartheid South Africa, two women meet and their worlds are turned upside down. Miriam and Amina are two very different Indian women who have migrated to Pretoria - one is the independent rebel, the other a dutiful housewife. The attraction between them is as forbidden as the mixing of races in this dangerous place of abhorrent social politics. In a system that divides white from black, black from Asian and women from men, what chance is there for an unexpected love to survive? This book has now been turned into a sumptuous feature film, adapted for the screen and directed by the author herself, and now available on DVD. This reprint is the movie tie-in version, with a cover featuring a still from the film. Also check out Sarif's best-selling follow-up, I Can't Think Straight, which she also made into a film, now  available on DVD.
