Set in pre-Mandela Apartheid South Africa on a poor white farm in the Transvaal, it is entirely fictional as to character but one element of the story was true. You might like to suggest which it was.?

I am grateful to Narrative for choosing to publish so conspicuously! Would be interested in all comments. This is a return to an earlier writing life. Short stories are now queuing for similar respectful attention.
