    This is the most distinguished novel that has come out of South Africa in the 20th century, and it is one of the most important novels of the modern era. Cry, the Beloved Country is in some ways a sad book; it is an indictment of a social system that drives native races into resentment and crime; it is a story of Fate, as inevitable, as relentless, as anything of Thomas Hardy's. Beautifully wrought with high poetic compassion, Cry, the Beloved Country is more than just a story, it is a profound experience of the human spirit.

    In Cry, the Beloved Country, a Zulu pastor travels in search of his son throughout a troubled and dangerous South Africa in the early 1940s. Compassionate, empathetic, and deeply moving, this tale of love and concern captures the imagination and brings to life the cost of conviction and the price of sacrifice.
