"In the Rapids follows Crossing Over, from the same editors of which the press said: "This is fiction as immediate as a smoking gun and autobiography as urgent as the confessional. It has the documentary veracity of country undergoing rapid change. It evokes a certain time, a special place, a specific memory... The success of the collection is not so much in the particular merit of the stories, which is often impressive, but rather the cumulative effect of 26 highly individual voices invited to tell us about their lives." The Sunday Independent "Stunning. Refreshing... All 26 stories seem to point to one destiny: a common humanity superior to the over dramatic colour differences. People, not races, appear to be the inexhaustible source of meaning... This anthology is a symbolic and creative coming together, a sharing of perspectives and skins..." Robert Muponde, African Publishing ReviewVom Verlag:
Thirty brand new stories from a wide spectrum of South Africans. A seering picture of our times and society emerges from the variety of contributions, as authors from different backgrounds - cultural, linguistic, geographical, economic and religious - provide us with glimpses into their experience. Authors include the best-selling and well established (Jenny Hobbs, Dianne Hofmeyr, Johnny Masilela, Rayda Jacobs, Marita van der Vyver, Fatima Dike, Melvin Whitebooi, Francois Bloemhof, Jeanne Goosen etc) as well as exciting new voices (like K. Sello Duiker, Arja Salafranca, Alan Kolski Horwitz and Buntu Siwisa).
