Problem child Nana, who sees little men who tell her to do mischief and who is more at home in “the brown place” of the spirit world than here on earth, is sent to a Roman Catholic convent in Zululand by her parents to be tutored and disciplined. But when she finally leaves Holy Hill, as the convent is known, she is broken - spiritually, mentally and physically.
A rebel who drifts between relationships, jobs, homes, Nana is accompanied by her guides and protectors, spirits and souls that know her for a suitable host. She finds herself Durban in the year 2004 - the moment Holy Hill opens - and meets a nemesis who has the potential to become her saviour: Claude Dema, former child soldier, opportunistic male prostitute, part-time drug dealer, an addict who is a born-again Christian. Will Nana return to Holy Hill, after an absence of sixteen years, to exorcise her demons?
A powerful and disturbing South African story of the present day, Angelina Sithebe's novel prods harshly to discomforting levels, raising issues about religion, patriarchy, child-rearing in African society, xenophobia and justifications for petty crime.
