While this is her first book, E.M. Macphail is no newcomer to the South African literary scene. Her stories are largely South African in content and context but the human warmth, compassion and humour which are the essence of her writing are universal. They are about love and despair, understanding and misconception, success and the fear of failure. Falling Upstairs is a collection which makes a major contribution to South African literature. Inscribed by the author, with her nickname 'China'.
