The Memory of Birds in Time Revolutions is a collection of searching new essays by the acclaimed author of Returen to Paradise and True Confessions of an Albion Terrorist. Essaying his homeland, Africa, at the end of the twentieth century, Breyten Breytenbach offers penetrating insights on a variety of topics: the release of Nelson Mandela from prison ("Nelson Mandela is Free"); the early days of Mandela's presidency, and its failures (the controversial "Open Letter to Nelson Mandela"); the geography of the writer's imagination ("Tortoise Steps"); death as the mother of beauty ("Cadavre Exquis"); the true meaning of reconciliation and reform after apartheid ("Fragments from a Growing Awareness of Unfinished Truths"); and much more.
