Bookclub-in-a-Box: Discusses Bitter Fruit

Some brief overview of book

Achmat Dangor, South African writer and political activist, has written an emotionally truthful book about the direction South Africa takes in the post-Mandela era. The novel centers on a young woman, Lydia, and her small family. Lydia had been brutally raped by an Afrikaans policeman during the Apartheid years.

Now, nearly 20 years later, the past comes back to confront Lydia, her husband Silas, and their son, Mikey. This powerful novel looks at relationships, both personal and political, and at the fruit these relationships bear. Bookclub-in-a-Box looks at the detailed way in which Dangor tells his haunting story and considers the various images and symbols Dangor uses to highlight and illustrate his themes.

In addition, every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel, the author and the unusual historic time that frames the story.
