A Red Woman was Crying includes seven stories (regular font) and seven Nagovisi myths (italicized).
The first six stories (set in 1969-70) are narrated by Nagovisi, and the last one (“Crocodile,” set in 2003) is in the anthropologist’s voice.
The Nagovisi myths were recorded in the field and transcribed with minimal editing. In some cases they bear directly on one or more stories.
