Kaffir Boy by Mark Mathabane

Book Description

This is an extraordinary and powerful account of the brutality and degradation black people suffered under the apartheid regime. A recognised classic, Mark Mathabane's remarkable story of life under apartheid is told with remarkable and relentless honesty. The reader is given a rare personal glimpse behind the televised protests and boycotts and into the daily fear and hunger which was so devastating. Often compared to Richard Wright's "Black Boy" and Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man", "Kaffir Boy" is a memoir of growing up in a world where poverty, hopelessness, and desperation are constant companions. Written with courage and conviction, Mathabane reveals the ultimate triumph of the human spirit over hatred and unspeakable disgrace.
