Noni Jabavu: A Stranger at Home is a compilation of her cheeky, witty and insightful columns, written in the 1970s for the Daily Dispatch. At 13, Noni Jabavu (1919-2008) left South Africa to continue her schooling in England, returning only for short visits in the decades that followed. Noni Jabavu was the first black South African woman to publish books on her life. Her memoirs Drawn in Colour and The Ochre People have been compared to Zora Neale Hurston’s work. A cosmopolitan, free-spirited woman, she returned home in 1977 and wrote a weekly column in the Daily Dispatch. This book is a compilation of these cheeky, insightful and hilarious columns for a younger audience of empowered women.
