About the Book

Lovers of the African Night continues Duggan’s epic folk tale of the Ba Nare farmers and cattle raisers who live in the remote village of Naring, on the edge of the Kalahari Desert. The people depicted in it are pragmatic and tenacious in their determination to hold onto their past...though the present continually batters them...The Ba Nare learn, but they will not forget or be forgotten. Mr. Duggan makes remembering them easy.”
