Set in Soweto outside Johannesburg, Between Two Worlds is one of the most important novels of South Africa under apartheid. Originally published in 1975 under the title Muriel at Metropolitan, the novel depicts the life of an account typist in a large busy shop where most of the clientele are poor. The author's fine eye for detail provides an unrivaled sense of everyday life in the South Africa of that time.
