Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The twenty-five selections, mostly short stories, reprinted here make painful reading for anyone sympathetic to the black African who must live under the daily indignities of apartheid. Considering the number of writers in exile, one may at first find those still living in South Africa suspect but, although the murderous violence familiar to newspaper readers is absent, there is still pain enough. For those unfamiliar with past or current events, fiction here is history as well as art.
