Cry, the Beloved Country

by Alan Paton

My words could never do justice to this story of the search of Rev. Steven Kumalo, a Zulu man, for his son Absalom in the streets of 1940s Johannesburg. It's sheer poetry, a deep look at racial prejudice and injustice but also truth and hope. Get a copy and read it already.

It's already on my shelf.
