The Wall of the Plague

(1984)
A novel by

 
 
Helping to research her lover's film on the great plague, Andrea returns to Provence. Travelling with Mandia, a fellow South African and Black activist, helps Andrea put into perspective the more hedonistic elements of her new life. As the story unfolds in a landscape evoked with a breathtaking mastery, Andrea and Mandia confront the uneasy relationships which develop between themselves and their lovers. Their difficulties form an allegory for those faced by two disparate continents, as they undertake the process of reconciling Europe's past and Africa's present.
