Zoe Wicomb's complex and deeply evocative fiction is among the most distinguished of South African women's literature. It is also one of the only works to explore the experience of 'Coloured' citizens in apartheid-era South Africa. You Can't Get Lost in Cape Town details Frieda Shenton's coming of age as a woman - and as a writer. It is only as Frieda finds the courage to tell her 'terrible stories' that she can at last begin to create her own place in a world where she has always felt herself an exile.
