Home Remedies by Diane Awerbuck

Home Remedies by Diane Awerbuck

Reviewed by Jonathan Amid

"After finishing Diane Awerbuck’s latest novel, Home Remedies, successor to Gardening at Night, I sat dumbfounded, almost in tears, thinking to myself: How do I describe this evocative novel to someone who loves reading? How to make sense of this work without reducing its complexity to a few adroit aphorisms?

Elegiac, painful, probing, ultimately hopeful, Home Remedies rarely falters in its esprit de corps for the everyman, the victims of the violent march of history."

About the book:

Joanna Renfield’s life at The Fish Hoek Valley Museum of Natural History gets complicated when DNA testing links the museum’s only claim to fame – a twelve thousand-year-old skeleton nicknamed Fish Hoek Man – with Saartjie Baartman. The media goes wild, the museum has a makeover, and Joanna gets a new Struggle veteran boss. She is here to teach Joanna a lesson – only it’s not the one either expects.
