Tales of different realities, frightening worlds and feminism – The Journalist

IMG_6792

Stacy Hardy delves into alternate experiences of reality, frightening worlds and feminism in her new collection of short stories Because the Night. The anthology was launched on 6 March at the Institute for the Study of English in Africa at Rhodes University.

Hardy’s collection comprises some of her older material as well as more recent compositions spanning a period of 12 years. It is her first collection of short stories. Nicola Schwartz, creative director of London-based publisher POCKO Editions, made the selection from Hardy’s oeuvre, and included previously published academic work and some unseen stories. With fringe-length blonde hair and intense blue eyes, Hardy sits in a Grahamstown coffee shop and recalls the selection as a rigorous and ruthless process, with the final collection unintentionally becoming “something of a road trip”.
