A Fork in the Road, Paperback

A Fork in the Road Paperback



This is Andre Brink's story of a life lived in tumultuous times.

He describes with searing honesty his conflicting experiences of growing up in a world where innocence was always surrounded by violence and storytelling was a means of reconciling the stark contrasts of his world.

His time spent in Paris in the 1960s confirmed in him the desire to become a writer but his opposition to the apartheid establishment resulted in years of harassment by the South African secret police; it also led to extraordinary friendships with leaders of the ANC in exile.

A Fork in the Road is Andre Brink's love song to the country where he was born and where, despite recent tragedies, he still lives today.
