Twenty-Four Writers on the Nature of Home in Louis Greenberg’s Home Away
It’s official! The much-anticipated compilation Home Away will be published by Zebra Press next month. Watch out for a special series related to the book on the Zebra Press blog starting next week – it will be “24″ with a twist!
Being South African isn’t as black and white as it used to be. People from all over the world make South Africa their home, while South Africans have more geographic freedom than ever before. This unique and captivating collection is a snapshot of South African writing today: emigrant and immigrant South Africans, living at home and away.
In Home Away, twenty-four chapters by twenty-four writers, set in cities all around the world, make up one global day, a mosaic reflecting on the nature of home. As the provocative stories in this collaboration suggest, often it’s when we are far away from home that we see it most clearly.
