Author: Uvile Ximba


Description:


Written with fierce beauty, this coming-of-age/coming-of-queer story looks at navigating the confusion that is intimacy, sex, and identity. In her debut novel, Dreaming in Color, Uvile Ximba explores with subtlety, humor, and probing insight the connections between the joyful reclaiming of pleasure and the healing of buried traumas. As students at university of Makhanda, South Africa during the #RUReferenceList campaign, Langa and her lover Khwezi have a passionate and complex relationship. Puzzling gaps in her memory haunt Langa, yet her dreams are vivid with colors and symbols that hint at a nightmare of forgotten violations and losses. So many secrets—and Langa has had enough of secrets and silences. Who can she turn to? Her mother? Her grandmother? Khwezi? Or herself? Dreaming in Color is Langa's story of coming out to herself, of discerning the history behind the closed door of conscious memory.
