A Fork in the Road jellemzők

This is André Brink's story of a life lived in tumultuous times. He describes, with searing honesty, his conflicting experiences of growing up in a world where innocence was always surrounded by violence, and storytelling was a means of reconciling the stark contrasts of his world. His time spent in Paris in the 1960s confirmed in him the desire to become a writer but this opposition to the apartheid establishment resulted in years of harassment by the South African secret police; it also led to extraordinary frienships with leaders of the ANC in exile.
