Cry the Beloved Country by Alan Paton
Cry the Beloved Country

popokigirl, January 4, 2010

Tough call for "Best Book I Read All Decade", but this is the one. For some reason, perhaps the way it kept being presented to me as an "important" book, I put off reading it, but when I finally did, I regretted the time spent not reading it. There's the time before reading it, and the time after, and it's too bad the time before was so long. The poetic/prosaic combination of voices reflected much more than two visions of a story--two visions of life, that somehow instead of being conflicting as one might expect them to be given the subject, somehow, in a strange way, end up being complementary. Gorgeous, gorgeous book.
