Book Description
    Head brilliantly develops ascending degrees of personal isolation, and is very moving when she describes abating pain.
    - The Sunday Times

It is never clear to Elizabeth whether the mission school principal's cruel revelation of her origins is at the bottom of her mental breakdown. She has left South Africa with her son and is living in the village of Motabeng, the place of sand, in Botswana where there are no street lights at night.
