Review:

"One cannot read this book without the total absorption that comes from the recognition of the truth" (Nadine Gordimer New Republic)

"As vigorous and as exquisitely written as anything he has produced" ( New York Times Book Review)

"Vivid and telling... Alan Paton may have come closer to conveying the essence of South African history than anyone else" ( Washington Post Book World)

From the Publisher:

Alan Patonís powerful novel is set in the 1950s, time of the Passive Resistance campaign, the Sophiatown removals, the emergence of the South African Liberal Party and the early stages of the Nationalist government in power. In a series of vivid and compelling episodes Paton examines what happens between people when such political events overtake their lives.
