One of the most authentic voices of this land is how Antjie Krog has described Sandile Dikeni. Since 1992 Dikeni has, in the Cape Times newspaper as well as various magazines, attempted to change the way in which South Africa sees itself. His progressive perspective on what it is to be human in South Africa has underpinned all his reflections on the kind of society he yearns for - whether he is confronting racism in its many guises, commenting on Hansie or the National Symphony Orchestra, or sharing personal experiences. Soul Fire brings together an entertaining and thought-provoking collection of Dikeni's prose. The essays run close to the heartbeat of South Africa but also travel beyond to Brazil, Norway, Holland, Germany and India.
