Description

The women question themselves and each other about why they waited and what this waiting did to them, leading to a series of extraordinary and haunting ‘conversations’ with one another as well as with Penelope and Winnie.

The life story of Winnie Mandela remains one of the great dramas of our times, an ongoing tale of triumphs and tragedies that are still unfolding. In the Cry of Winnie Mandela, a highly acclaimed novel first released in 2003, Njabulo S. Ndebele focuses on four women at a specific period in the history of southern Africa who has spent time waiting for their men to return. Their ordinary, ‘private’ stories are anchored to the more powerful public stories of Penelope, of ancient Greek mythology, who waited eighteen years while her husband Odysseus was away, and Winnie Mandela, who waited for twenty-seven years.
