Through the rich and often moving stories of African migrant women living in Johannesburg, this book explores the experience of living between geographies. Author Caroline Kihato draws on fieldwork and analysis to examine the everyday lives of those inhabiting a fluid location "between and betwixt" multiple worlds, suspended between their original home and an imagined future elsewhere. Around them, they create a social world that reflects tensions, risks, and opportunities. By revealing the lives of people who are often hidden from view, the book tells the story of women's migration to Johannesburg as they experience it. In this interstitial city, we uncover how their relationships with the state, economy, place and community shape contemporary urban life.
