Description
Information
In the city of Johannesburg a father seeks his delinquent son. His search takes him through a labyrinth of murder, prostitution, racial hatred and, ultimately, reconciliation. In Cry, The Beloved Country Alan Paton addresses the problem of race relations in South Africa with the scrupulousness of a historian, the sensitivity of a poet. Over fifty years after its creation, it remains the classic narrative of racial tension - intensely pertinent, unforgettably poignant.
'No book since Uncle Tom's Cabin has had the impact that Cry, The Beloved Country had on international opinion on the issue of race.'
Donald Woods, Sunday Times

'The most influential South African novel ever written.'
Nadine Gordimer, Observer
