    The sacred intertwines with the everyday; topics here range from storytelling, a solar eclipse and a healing ritual to riding in a truck and attending a tribal fair. As he begins to realise the complexity of the case he is dealing with - whether Trickle died accidentally or otherwise - the spirits of the dead members of the two families reveal to the reader more and more about their histories and also keep an eye on the activity of the magistrate, who despite himself becomes gradually drawn towards the people whom he is investigating. I recommend this highly. The short play is staged as a concert work, with five performers sitting on chairs in front of music stands, where they've laid their scripts. The Cry of the Huna invokes the author's personal history as he recounts the decline of his people's spiritual tradition as a result of colonization. The world is now a much smaller place and millions of people grow up outside their parents' country of origin, but the transformation from an African to European society is a special one, throwing up issues of race, colour, colonialism, slavery and prejudice.

    As both approach 30, they decide to go home. Reminiscing about his first hospital visit to have his adenoids removed, he shares his fear of whites, of Sioux, and of ghosts. It seems as if the magistrate will have to judge an entire dynasty, both the living and the dead. The experience of being black and British is different from the way it was for their parents' generation.

    It was written during, and concerns the Apartheid era. They are confident enough to explore their roots and expose the conflict. He will be hailed as an important voice in South African fiction. I spent the first few days feeling like a fraud, until I began to realise that my experience was commonplace and accepted by Nigerians, although I was conscious of how I had neglected my African side as a teenager, keener instead to forge a sense of myself as a black Briton. As a woman living in liberal, secular Britain, life in Eritrea takes getting used to. Gurney is known as one of the most prolific and produced playwrights in America.
