A Season in Paradise

 
9780224018760: A Season in Paradise

Breytenbach's first visit to South Africa, after thirteen years in exile, is more than just a dazzling travelogue. He is searching for a "paradise" that coincides with the geography, mysticism, and mythologies of Africa, but in reality his homeland is an often hellish region of racial discrimination and bigotry. Introduction by André Brink. Translated by Rike Vaughan.
