A moving story set in apartheid South Africa Mouse a young shy woman who never knew her real parents and does not know how to love and be loved is pursued by her colleague journalist Johnny Johnny has had several amorous affairs but falls in love with Mouse and proceeds to teach her to love him through brutal methods With several references to South Africa's laws against interracial relationships these two though both black are committing a bigger taboo though they'll never knowThe Cardinals was published posthumously It's my fourth Bessie Head book but the first time I've read her work before her exile in Botswana Her writing is powerful Her narration brilliant She writes biting political critiue and social commentary And through her character Johnny she subverts the system and its rules through words and deed One is left to wonder how far Bessie would've gone with her writing against apartheid if she had stayed in South Africa The book also includes a few short stories Altogether I think this is now my favourite Bessie book
