Summary

Reflecting Rogue is the much anticipated and brilliant collection of experimental autobiographical essays on power, pleasure and South African culture by Professor Pumla Dineo Gqola. In her most personal book to date, written from classic Gqola anti-racist, feminist perspectives, Reflecting Rogue delivers 20 essays of deliciously incisive brain food, all extremely accessible to a general critical readership, without sacrificing intellectual rigor. These include essays on &;Disappearing Women&;, where Gqola spends time exploring what it means to live in a country where women can simply disappear &; from a secure Centurion estate in one case, to being a cop in another, and being taken by men who know them. &;On the beauty of feminist rage&; magically weaves together the shift in gender discourse in South Africa&;s public spheres, using examples from #RUReferenceList, #RapeAtAzania and #RememberingKhwezi. While &;I&;ve got all my sisters with me&; explores the heady heights of feminist joy, &;A meditation on feminist friendship with gratitude&; exposes a new, and more personal side to ever-incisive Gqola.
