Fiction. It is the turbulent 1980s in apartheid South Africa, when even the ordinary life is full of danger and uncertainty. Tihelo, a thirteen-year-old girl lives with her older sister Keitumetse and their mother Kgomotso in a township outside Pretoria. Life in this brutalized South Africa holds mysteries of other sorts. DANCING IN THE DUST is a moving story of growing up in a fearful, oppressive society, where the only comfort for the young is dream and romance, and the only free option that of rebellion. Kagiso Lesego Molope was born in South Africa in 1976 where she also grew up, before moving to Canada in 1997. DANCING IN THE DUST is her first novel.
