Description

Here are egte South African stories that flirt with legend and history, go to bed with world literature, and produce a golem elephant, a talking fish, Black Jim the colonel of dragoons, a Green Man in the Cotswolds, a donkey on heat in Pofadder, ancestral voices and much more. 

The sangoma Malibongwe Ngingingini is an old friend who moves in realms of consciousness along with his beloved apprentice Anna. Their task is to heal, which they do in ever more inventive forms as they travel in South Africa and then further afield. This first collection of tales from the shaman’s record will be followed by further packages of their exploits between the light and dark.
