Antije Krog's full account of the Commission's work using the testimonies of the oppressed and oppressors alike is a harrowing and haunting book in which the voices of ordinary people shape the course of history. WINNER OF SOUTH AFRICA'S SUNDAY TIMES ALAN PATON AWARD
Antjie Krog was born in 1952 in Kroonstad, a town in the Free State province of South Africa. She has published eight volumes of poetry, several of which have been translated into European languages and have won international prizes.
Reporting as Antjie Samuel, the author and her SABC radio team received the Pringle Award for excellence in journalism for reporting on the Truth and Reconcilliation Commission. Krog also won the Foreign Correspondents' Award for outstanding journalism for her articles on the Truth Commission. She went on to become parliamentary editor for SABC radio in 1997 and has since been appointed as an Extraordinary Professor in the Arts Faculty at the University of the Western Cape.
Antjie Krog is married and is the mother of four children.
"One of the best books of the year" The Economist "No one will tell us more about the struggle for the Afrikaner's soul; for this book, like the events it reports, is an act of redemption" Daily Telegraph "Krog's account of the hearings, which recorded 20,000 statements from victims and nearly 8,000 applications for amnesty, is vivid and impassioned" Mail on Sunday "Whatever it is that makes a major lasting work of non-fiction, it is here" Observer "Her accounts are so powerful, her resilience, humour and compassion so engaging...to have written this book is heroic" Sunday Times
