Out of Bounds: Seven Stories of Conflict and Hope

(1) 4-6 This collection reminds us that, as Desmond Tutu writes in his foreward, "there is a beast in each of us, and none of us can ever say we would never be guilty of such evil." Naidoo's book reveals our humanity and inhumanity with starkness and precision. Each of the stories is set in a different decade--from the 1940s to 2000--to illustrate the changing political realities of South Africa. Naidoo honors her country with these brave tales.
