A highly restricted vocabulary; much use of repetition, often used in consecutive sentences, eg., "I need... I need... I need..." and "Let me tell... Let me tell... Let me tell...". The story itself is a bit odd: a dying professor is writing letters to her daughter in the U.S.A. (this is the form that most of the narration occurs) and she finds a homeless man on her property, and eventually in her garage, and eventually in her own bed, meanwhile the country (South Africa) is in a state of mild civil war and her maid's son and his friend are involved in the struggle against the government.
