"Why is it that one doesn’t criticize that American woman the same way one does her counterpart in South Africa?"
I think that literature, among other disciplines, should ask itself that question. American authors (well, western authors to be honest) should ask themselves that question.

  • 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.
