Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cry, the Beloved Country is a beautifully told and profoundly compassionate story of the Zulu pastor Stephen Kumalo and his son Absalom, set in the troubled and changing South Africa of the 1940s.

The book is written with such keen empathy and understanding that to read it is to share fully in the gravity of the characters' situations. It both touches your heart deeply and inspires a renewed faith in the dignity of mankind. Cry, the Beloved Country is a classic tale, passionately African, timeless and universal, and beyond all, selfless.

Synopsis:

Over 50 years after its creation, this is the classic narrative on racial tension in South Africa. In the city of Johannesburg a father seeks his delinquent son; his search takes him through a labyrinth of murder, prostitution, racial hatred and, ultimately, reconciliation.

Synopsis:

The moving story of a zulu pastor and his son that was first published in 1948.
