did not like it
bookshelves: c20th, south-africa, wish-i-hadn-t-wasted-my-time
Read in January, 1989

It's a long time since I read this but I remember very clearly comparing the treatment of White Boy as Hero in this book to Huckleberry Finn, and feeling outraged by the puerile lack of genuine empathy for the fate of South African blacks.
