Rachelle Greeff (born 1957)
This Cape Town author and journalist has written mainly short-stories, including the recent collection Palazzo van die laaste dans (Palazzo of the Last Dance; 2006). Here, the leitmotif of the ten stories is dance. While some of her journalistic works appears in English-language newspapers, she sticks to Afrikaans for her stories and novels. Her second and longest novel to date is Hanna (idem; 2002) which tells the story of how her life is shattered when, after preparing a welcome feast, Hanna hears what her son Wim has to say on his return from abroad.
