9780099527039: A Fork in the Road

This is André Brink's story of a life lived in tumultuous times. He describes with searing honesty his conflicting experiences of growing up in a world where innocence was always surrounded by violence and storytelling was a means of reconciling the stark contrasts of his world.

His time spent in Paris in the 1960s confirmed in him the desire to become a writer but his opposition to the apartheid establishment resulted in years of harassment by the South African secret police; it also led to extraordinary friendships with leaders of the ANC in exile.

A Fork in the Road is André Brink's love song to the country where he was born and where, despite recent tragedies, he still lives today.

Review:

"A passionate and remarkably brave exhumation of loves, hates and friendships" (Nicholas Shakespeare Daily Telegraph)

"Elegiac, angry and earnest" ( Guardian)

"Those who have never before opened one of Brink's books and wish to find him at his considerable best should at once read the first sixty pages of his autobiography" ( Literary Review)

"Brink's a brave man, oh yes, and this is an extraordinary book because it combines, uniquely, angry forensic polemic with writing of the highest order" ( Irish Times)

"Romanticism, often in the teeth of appalling oppression and tragedy, is the spirit which runs through A Fork in the Road" ( Herald)

Book Description:

The memoir of one of South Africa's best-loved novelists.
