Cry, the Beloved Country. (Signed by the Author)
Paton’s “absorbing book presents more effectively than any other the long, strained relations with the government of South Africa and its black citizens. His subject is the tragedy of apartheid policies, in many ways a worse form of slavery ... This novel not only gives insight into the making of a significant author, it also gives another deep glimpse into the soul of a nation’s insoluble personal tragedy. It is certainly one of the most readable novels ever written about apartheid and human values.” (Blockson) Signed by Alan Paton upon a bound-in sheet which is protected by a tissue guard. An unread copy.
