She buzzes back in the back of my head like a bluebottle sometimes” (353).
  12. 12. • “The „tribe‟ does not exclusively consist of the living . Since the dead ancestors hold power which transcends that of the living, they are highly revered” (Raeke).• “Sometimes there are very good reasons for their persistence in our world. Sometimes we have failed them” (353).
