Dow writes this world the way men and women in her country sing – with a zest fed by connection to the earth and to a shared past … The High Court Judge is an astute diagnostician of the ills – social, biological and political – of her country, and of Africa in general. With this book she will help to change things.Morag Fraser, The Age
