A Carpet for Life
A book of stories about small markets. Here – that is to say, in the back yards of the world – ways of trading become apparent. This is where people meet, relationships are forged, people get one over each other and make up again. With each story, our admiration grows for the resourcefulness of people who trade and find their place in the world.
The book «A Carpet for Life» has also been translated into Korean.
They Carry the World on their Heads
The women of Zimbabwe take on the adverse circumstances in their country with an admirable strength and undaunted humour. They know: only they who laugh survive! This book tells their stories. We meet them, young and old. We see them set out, fail – and then get up again.
