Sinopse

In the first story, there are echoes of Mahatma Ghandi being thrown off a whites-only train at Pietermaritzburg station. This is not a story about Ghandi, rather, it is about schoolboys from privileged backgrounds at a private boarding school one of whom witnesses a similar incident. The narrator, aged between twelve and sixteen over the time frame of the story, is unsuccessful academically and untalented in most other things. He has a grudge against authority. However, when he and his partner in crime (another schoolboy) enrol in a volunteer project, he discovers a worthwhile cause which ultimately benefits him more than irregular Latin verbs, the horrors of trigonometry and even the kind attentions of the headmaster’s cane. It is a story of growing maturity and awareness. The second story is light and humorous. Great-grandmother Zodwa summons the family to a conference where she plans to reveal the contents of her will. There is great rivalry between her children who make secret pacts between one another, pacts which they break as and when it suits them. The youngest daughter is her mother’s favourite. She is confident of receiving the largest part of the estate. The eldest daughter, on the other hand, believes that it should be given to her in terms of the rights of primogeniture. She is even prepared to sacrifice some of her mother’s jewels if the second sister supports her. But, what about the nurse who has been caring for the old lady for years? It could be that the three sisters have overlooked their real rival when it comes to the division of the spoils.
