The Scholarship Girl by Abigail George

The Scholarship Girl is an intriguing, developing, stream of conscious portrait of a South African writer, dealing with the complexities of being human, being a woman, being South African as she grows through a difficult girlhood, through a difficult adulthood, towards poetry. The text is fraught with beautiful painful images. The portrait of the artist is intriguing, surreal: “I have one blue eye. Blue as the sky on a wild Saturday, and the other green. As green as a mocking sea.”
