Jayne Galassi

CapeTown, South Africa


My first book - Ezulweni, Place of Heaven published 2006
is set in 1950's tribal Swaziland at the height of British colonialism - an irony of racial seperation as seen through the eyes of a young child - a bitter-sweet nostalgic journey.
My second book awaiting publication- Cactus Letters takes place in present day south Africa - about loss of love and uncertain identity in the changing dynamics of a country and the choice to overcome diversity.
My third book, still in the editing process, is based on a true story about a court case for the custody of a small boy caught between an exclusive religious sect and an ordinary family.
I love the power and the subtlety of prose, the sometimes obscure but tender relationships between people, and the universal truths as a background to the story of human dlemmas.
