What People are Saying About This

Welcome Msomi

"A story borne of the spirit of Africa, depicting complex, lively and vibrant characters who speak with passion. David Schmahmann's "Empire Settings" takes the reader on an amazing journey."
Playwright, Chairman of Naledi ya Afrika From a letter dated March 15, 2001

Desmond M. Tutu

"It bristles with tension and suspense and is remarkably authentic. You can smell the sea and the decay and almost touch the people who are so real."
Archbishop Emeritus, Nobel Laureate from a letter dated June 11, 2001

Cosmo Macero

"David Schmahmann weaves a compelling love story while helping us understand a nation's battle against itself. This is beautiful storytelling and Empire Settings is an important book."
Political Reporter, Boston Herald from a letter dated March 3, 2001

Helen Suzman

"David Schmahmann1s story of a lasting love between a young white man and a young coloured woman during the apartheid era is an intriguing overview of the whole social scene in South Africa at that time. It is a very good read."
Former opposition Member of the South African Parliament, Recipient of the United Nations Human Rights Award From a letter dated March 29, 2001

Will D. Campbell

"Skillfully told, engrossing, and subtly wise, a novel that makes politics powerfully personal in its telling of the agony and the still incomplete triumph of the new multi-racial South Africa."
National Humanities Medallist, Civil Rights Activist and Author of "Brother To A Dragonfly" from a letter dated April 5, 2001
