Writing in anxious times

2008-08-06 00:00

Cape Town author Henrietta Rose-Innes is intrigued by the odd interactions that take place between natural and urban landscapes and by the manner in which people have to adapt to inhabit unstable environments.

“I am interested in the theme of people’s existences in the spaces between the city and the wilderness, particularly in and around Cape Town where we have such interesting urban spaces between the city and the wilderness. I have always felt drawn to those spaces,” said Rose-Innes. “I have written about the informal dwellings on the edges of the city that are not quite urban, but not quite wild, and the strange interactions between the natural and urban aspects.”
