1. On Saturday, 25 March 2006, Andries Visagie conducted this public interview with Afrikaans writers Marita van der Vyver and Ingrid Winterbach during the 9th Time of the Writer Festival in the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre in Durban. The festival is organised annually by die Centre for Creative Arts based at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Some of the other writers participating in the festival were Chris Abani, José Eduardo Agualusa, Abdelkader Benali, Bernardine Evaristo, Amitav Ghosh, Kagiso Lesego Molope, Ishtiyaq Shukri and Eliot Weinberger. I would like to thank Loraine Prinsloo for helping me with the transcription of the interview.
