"And this has become a cameo moment of de Kok's work: fearlessness, guts to transgress, an unfailing ear for the alternation of consonants on the tongue, a turn of thinking and the ability to capture in the most delicate and individual terms a devastating phenomenon." - Antjie Krog, Mail and Guardian "De Kok is not interested in shoveling the truth away. She is determined to look it in the face, and she has a steady gaze." Gillian Slovo, Sunday Independent
