Turning her back on what is considered conventional, Makhosazana Xaba engages with her subject-matter on a revolutionary level in Running and Other Stories. She takes tradition � be that literary tradition, cultural tradition, gender tradition � and re-imagines it in a way that is liberating and innovative. Bracketed by Xaba�s revisitings of Can Themba�s influential short story, The Suit, the ten stories in this collection, while strongly independent, are in conversation with one another, resulting in a collection that can be devoured all at once or savoured slowly, story by story. By re-envisioning the ordinary and accepted, Xaba is creating a space in which women�s voices are given a rebirth.
