This presentation is spot on. Exactly what I propagate and her American experiences are true as they remind me of what I captured in my memoirs -- My White Grandpa (June 2008 -- British Council Prize). It is a story about my mid-west (Nebraska)experiences of being hosted by an 84-year old widower, a retired cornhusker and strict Mennonite.

If you need a hard copy of the memoirs (US$25 inclusive of shipping), please let me know at the below email contacts. I regularly ship overseas because it is not available online.

Need to get in touch with Enole Ditsheko A.S.A.P

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
