The One That Got Away
Short StorieseBook - 2009
The appearance of Zo Wicomb's first set of short stories, You Can't Get Lost in Capetown, precipitated the founding of a fan club that has come to include Toni Morrison, J.M. Coetzee, Bharati Mukherjee, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and writers at the New York Times, the London Times, the Wall Street Journal, the New Yorker, and the Christian Science Monitor. Now, after two novels, Wicomb returns to the genre that first brought her international acclaim. Set mostly in Capetown and Glasgow, Wicomb's new collection of short stories straddles dual worlds. An array of characters drawn with extraordi.
