Mouthful of Glass by Henk van Woerden
Book DescriptionA short, tough story of an assassin - the man who killed Hendrick Verwoerd, the racist prime minister of South Africa, in 1966. The killer was a man lost between the races, maddened by not knowing who or what he was. Born in Mozambique of a Greek father and African mother, Demitrios Tsafendas thought he was white until his father abandoned him. He then discovered that he was "coloured". He spent 25 years wandering the world looking for a home, growing stranger and more desperate. In 1965 he arrived in South Africa and got a job in the Parliament building - a job reserved for whites. Then he bought a knife.
