Tales of different realities, frightening worlds and feminism – The Journalist

Portfolio by Chelsea Haith

Stacy Hardy delves into alternate experiences of reality, frightening worlds and feminism in her new collection of short stories Because the Night. The anthology was launched on 6 March at the Institute for the Study of English in Africa at Rhodes University.

Hardy’s collection comprises some of her older material as well as more recent compositions spanning a period of 12 years. It is her first collection of short stories. Nicola Schwartz, creative director of London-based publisher POCKO Editions, made the selection from Hardy’s oeuvre, and included previously published academic work and some unseen stories. With fringe-length blonde hair and intense blue eyes, Hardy sits in a Grahamstown coffee shop and recalls the selection as a rigorous and ruthless process, with the final collection unintentionally becoming “something of a road trip”.
