About this book:

It all began with the anger of Laduma, the Thunder God, and the birth of a special child with flickering eyes. This is the tale of Mabena, Mantombi and their grandson Duma – who are exiled from their ancestral home and thrown into the turmoil of township life.
Mabena tries to keep the the values of the past alive, but Duma becomes intrigued and bedazzled by urban life and jazz music. The story of a traditional African community in change, swayed by the forces of modernity and political change.
