Abstract:

"A letter from her brother Jake calls Mercia back to Kliprand, the parched dorp she left for a life in Scotland years ago. Had she not been abandoned by her partner of twenty-four years, Mercia might never have returned to Namaqualand [South Africa] ... In Kliprand, she finds a broken Jake ... But what secrets haunt this family, and what sense is there to make of this thorny place called home? Zoë Wicomb's October is a moving family history and an incisive commentary on what it means to belong."--Jacket.
