A truly heart-rending story, about a young Tswana boy living in a small village in Botswana who is an albino. The unsophisticated rural community ostracises him and avoids him out of fear that they will become like him - a fate worse than death! His longing to be accepted as part of the community and his efforts to bring this about, as well as the outcome of these efforts, form the poignant main theme of this very beautiful book for teenaged readers.

A young choir mistress is found among weeds and rocks outside the local shebeen - murdered. Why? And by whom? The community of Meriting endlessly discuss the list of possible suspects.

The story takes place on the day of Dirk's eighteenth birthday, when he has applied for a position in a youth training programme at Kagiso Holdings. At seventeen, and without finishing school, he had hitchhiked back to Johannesburg, where he lived with his parents until he was twelve years old. Now, back in Villa Park, his old Johannesburg neighbourhood, Dirk lives in the maid's quarters of the house in Groenewald Street where he lived as a boy.
At the Kagiso Holdings interview Dirk finds he is unable to answer the questions in the test he is given, and copies from the girl in front of him. When he is discovered, he is kicked out of the interview. His day goes from bad to worse - and as the story unfolds, the reader learns of Dirk's life up to now; why he was living with his sister for the last five years, and why he has come back to Jo'burg. Dirk eventually learns that while life can be 'unfair', we all have the power to treat fairly the people we encounter.

"For 12-14 years. Set in the fictional town of Gap Falls, where two young girls, Louise van Rensburg and Faheema Majiet, have become best friends despite their very different backgrounds. But cataclysmic events far beyond South Africa's borders (bombings on the London Underground and an insensitive cartoon portrayal of the prophet Mohammed) serve to drive a wedge between them. When their respective families prohibit their friendship, they realise it is up to them to find a way to restore their relationship and to convince the adults of their deep emotional bond.

The theme is tolerance and seeing similarities and common grounds. This novel was shortlisted for the MacMillan African Writers' Prize. Jenny Robson has won both South African and international awards (Sanlam, M.E.R., Percy Fitzpatrick, UNESCO and Noma Honourable Mention)."

Thoughtful, insightful and compelling, Granite is a well-executed imagining of what happened to cause the collapse of the civilisation of Great Zimbabwe (called Zimba Remabwe in the book.)
While adult historical fiction has experienced a recent resurgence in interest, narratives are mostly drawn from European history.
Granite is refreshingly African, illuminating a relatively unexplored area in fiction. It also shifts "fictionalised history" away from the European centre: in the story, Zimba Remabwe exists as a sophisticated African city state well integrated with the rest of the mid-fifteenth-century world. It is a world in which Arab scholars travel from China and India to Europe and Britain, filing their chronicles in the revered library of Timbuktu.
The narrative method is worth noting: because he cannot write, the story is dictated by a young nobleman called Mokomba - one of few survivors of his city's downfall. The penman is Shafiq, a learned Arab traveller who is a father figure after the passing of Mokomba's own father.
Each chapter relates a series of events from these two characters' perspectives, as they fill in what the other might have glossed over. The result is a finely rendered narrative of two distinct voices.
