’n Droë wit seisoen | General Fiction
André P. Brink
Human & Rousseau
A welcome reissue of this powerful story about moral courage and the ills of a society divided by race. The novel has become a landmark in South African literature about the seventies period of unrest and death in detention. The main character is an ordinary man who tries to get at the truth behind the death of a black man. He is not motivated by political issues but by a sense of moral outrage. When he realises his life might be in danger, he entrusts all the documents of his investigation to an old friend.
