About this book:

A feminist exploration of the public lives of performer Simphiwe Dana - a rebel with several causes, in eight essays, award winning author, Prof Gqola brilliantly shows why Dana is arguably one of the most significant cultural figures working in contemporary South Africa today. Fluctuating public responses to Ms Dana show us something about South African sensitivities to Blackness, femininity, language and the imagination.
