I recently read Goretti's Whispers from Vera (Monitor Publications 2002). I fell in love with the book back in the day when Daily Monitor used to ssrialiee it on weekends and for a long time i could not get my hands on the book. And when i finally did, it was great. I did not know our African women writers are confortable writing explicitly on sex. It was great. Where can i get her other books here in Kampala, Uganda ? Cheers.
