Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton
First published in 1948, Cry, The Beloved Country stands as the single most important novel in twentieth century South African literature.
Cry the Beloved Country is the deeply moving story of the Zulu pastor Stephen Kumalo and his son Absalom, set against the background of a land and a people riven by racial injustice.
Remarkable for its contemporaneity, unforgettable for character and incident, Cry, the Beloved Country is a classic work of love and hope, courage and endurance, born of the dignity of man.
